Frenchs Forest oozes a nostalgic charm. Lush bushland and quiet meandering streets are the backdrop to a neighbourhood that is all about family living. Only minutes from the incredible line up of beaches along the rugged northern coastline and with direct access to major shopping hubs, it’s no wonder families of all shapes and sizes call Frenchs Forest home.
A neighbourhood where large family homes with even larger blocks of land are the norm, Frenchs Forest is where children pedal their bikes on footpaths and L-Platers stall their cars as they learn to master the hill start.
Known for being the gateway to the northern beaches, Frenchs Forest is a place where families have the luxury of being able to spread out. The surrounding Garigal National Park, bushlands, the extensive network of neighbourhood reserves and the world-class beaches, are all only minutes away.
Locals source daily necessities from Forestway Shopping Centre, but many choose to wait for the popular weekly farmers market to buy home-grown fruit and veggies. For a cultural fix, Glen Street Theatre has a programme tailored to suit the whole family.
This neighbourhood retains its close-knit community feel, even as the area grows to incorporate the new Northern Beaches Hospital and unobtrusive business parks.
A choice of reputable day care centres, primary and high schools service the growing community. Combined with playgrounds scattered throughout, Frenchs Forest is a family-friendly environment.
