THE IAN POTTER CHILDREN'S WILD PLAY GARDEN

The Ian Potter Children's WILD PLAY Garden in the heart of Centennial Park offers city kids and adults alike an opportunity to immerse themselves in an oasis of nature-play and adventure.

The WILD PLAY Garden is designed to cater for all ages and abilities in a dramatic landscape in which children are encouraged to run, jump, play, learn and discover the wild side of life.

WILD PLAY allows children to get lost in the wonder of nature with dry creek beds, an artesian water play area, a bamboo forest, banksia tunnels, turtle mounds and Centennial Park's first treehouse.

The creation of this incredible wonderland was a key initiative under the Centennial Park Master Plan 2040.
