THE NEWLAND’S IDEAL POSITION ENABLES A CONNECTED, COSMOPOLITAN LIFESTYLE SURROUNDED BY NATURE.

The Newlands Aerial
The halfway point between North Sydney and Chatswood, St Leonards sits at the very centre of Sydney’s Lower North Shore – an area that’s known for its many parks, foreshore walks and vibrant village lifestyle. Add to the mix some of Sydney’s best-known schools and healthcare facilities, plus great shopping and dining, and it’s easy to see why you’d want to call St Leonards home.

The beauty of St Leonards is that you don’t just have one local centre – you’re in the middle of a clutch of villages scattered throughout the area. Each has its own charm and specific attractions, and all are worth a look.

With so many parks, ovals and bushland reserves on The Newlands’ doorstep, it’s hard to pick a favourite – but here are a few of the standouts.

Newlands Park

A great example of surrounding place character, Newlands Park has a simple but beautiful aesthetic characterised by established trees, sloping green lawns and stone walls. For decades, locals have known it as the ‘long slippery dip park’ due to its extended slide, which has been a feature since 1978. The park also features a shaded kid’s playground, off-leash dog area, BBQs and space to kick around a ball.

Smoothey Park

Hop across River Road from The Newlands, and you’ll enter the lush bushland of Smoothey Park. The park runs from Russell Street to Milray Avenue and alongside Wollstonecraft Station – and it’s the start of a series of interconnected bush parks and walking tracks that can take you all the way down to Sydney Harbour. Along the way, you can enjoy the serenity of Berry Creek, the largest remaining natural creek line in Sydney. The park also has an active bush regeneration group and a popular men’s shed.
