I'd not call this a park: a carpark maybe? It's an excellent look out point for whales, and we saw some; whilst sitting on a bench next to the car park!

Great place to come and sit, relax and watch the ocean. Views south to Manly and North Head and beaches north past Curl Curl. Right now there is major construction going on at The Mounties.

Great place just to sit and watch the ocean or access the pool. Views to North Head and North Curl Curl. Parking fees apply unless you are a Warringah resident. Accessing some of the parking area requires a difficult sharp turn especially if someone has parked inconsiderately opposite the entrance. Area could do with some more seats.

We visited this area coincidently because of geocaching. The sea views are really beautiful. You can see Fresh water beach. There is swimming pool thee as well.

This is a beautiful park on the headland overlooking Freshwater Beach and out to sea. Beautiful views south towards Manly and north towards Curl Curl and Dee Why Beaches. A circular viewing area with a low stonewall on which to sit and take in the views. Also a good vantage point during whale watching season. Metered car parking and Toilet... More
