The Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden in Centennial Park is proving a hit with the kids of Sydney.

Over the past week, children and their families from right across Sydney made their way to the Garden, which is designed to be an outdoor learning experience for kids of all abilities and backgrounds.

It is made up of dry creek beds, an Artesian water play area, bamboo forest, tunnels, turtle mounds – as well as Centennial Park’s first treehouse.

Here’s a video from the official opening, including more information on what WILD PLAY is all about:

The WILD PLAY Garden encourages children to climb, run, jump and get dirty. It encourages physical literacy and a greater engagement with the natural world.

The beautiful 6000 square metre garden, featuring 12,000 plants – firmly establishes Centennial Parklands as Sydney’s leading nature play space.

Entry to the Garden is free, and the play space is open between 10am and 5pm, every day of the week.
