Linley Point is a peninsula between the northern side of the Lane Cove River and Burns Bay. Views to the Sydney CBD and the Sydney Harbour Bridge with Hunters Hill and St Ignatius' College, Riverview in the foreground are the area's primary attraction.

Linley Point has a relatively large park on The Crescent. It is used for annual get-together events for the community; a place of being. In early 2000s, the park has had an upgrade which includes a slide. The park has had an upgrade in early 2012, with a lot of bark placed on dangerous rock areas. As there are many younger children living in the suburb, it is regularly used.
