The Ian Potter Children’s Wild Play Garden
The Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden, is a state-of-the-art nature play space designed to engage the five senses, and help to reconnect children to nature.
The natural play space features water play, creek beds, bamboo forests, banksia tunnels and outdoor classrooms, all designed to inspire and encourage children to engage in exciting, creative and imaginative outdoor ‘wild play’.
One of the areas in the new garden is the Artesian water play, which includes a ‘spring’ as the water source from which the water runs over the rocks and pools in a bubbling basin for kids to splash about in the warmer months. There is also an amazing treehouse surrounded by a lush bamboo forest, with hanging rope bridge and a giant slide.
The Ian Potter Children’s Wild Play Garden will take an annual break every August and re open for spring.
Access to the Garden will be via a pathway off Grand Drive near the York Road Gates area. Located adjacent to the Education Precinct off Dickens Drive in Centennial Park.
