Of course the people of Sorrento would build something so lovely, complete with breathtaking views. This community funded playground is perched on top of the hill with views over the bay and the ferry terminal. It is a large wooden timber playground - the kind mamma LOVES - full of nooks and crannies, turrets, slides, ramps, sandpit, swings, firemans pole and more. Mamma tries to dress the kids in hi vis so that they are easily spotted through the timber panels - although it is enclosed except for a couple of entry/exit points and surrounded by plenty of grassy spots to picnic - plus picnic tables, a rotunda and bbq's.
Mamma's special mention: In summer, the Sorrento back beach is great at low tide for some rock pool water play and adventure.
the nitty gritty
