Rosherville Reserve is a big grassed reserve with lots of trees that provide shade for casual picnics on the grass. There is also a small playground and toilets with change rooms.
Chinamans Beach is not well-known amongst tourists but it is very popular with the locals. It is a very pleasant place to bask in the sun on the beach; to enjoy a lazy picnic or to play family ball games at the Reserve! The Rosherville Reserve is located at McLean Crescent, Mosman with parking on the street.
