    Hi guys,
    After several years in the eastern suburbs (I know, I know) the wife and I, now with twin boys in tow, are moving to Frenchs Forest. The best part is our boys will grow up in close proximity to Brookvale Oval.
    Anyway, I've never lived in the area before (the closest I got was Neutral Bay/Cremorne Point during my carefree bachelor days, which were never as carefree as I'd hoped). Anyone got any tips for a newcomer? Best beaches for kids? Best places to shop? Best parks? Anything at all?
    All suggestions welcome.

    Basically it is like the western suburbs with a beach, but people have their noses higher in the air.

    You will also suffer from public transport etc. The other major issue is your proximity to Ryan and his constant nudity :)

    It's not a bad place to live I just found it tough commuting to work from there all the time. I live in Artarmon these days which is only a hop skip and a jump from Frenchs Forest and it's pretty good living

    The Beaches are great says one who lives in the North West but has in-laws still over there. Warringah Mall is okay for shopping, Narrabeen and Freshwater are my favourite beaches, though Dee Why is great for the kids. I will talk to my brother who lives in Dee Why for more info, though I love the parks at Narrabeen Lakes and the bike path is also really nice.
