Nature Play in Callan Park

With beautiful trees, waterfront bay views and rich historical roots, Callan Park provides the perfect setting for nature play experiences for children and families of the Inner West!

For the Easter school holidays, Nature Play returned to Callan Park, at a new location. The pop-up play space, located near the NSW Writers' Centre and delivered by Greater Sydney Parklands’ expert educators, used renewable resource material to stimulate play and connection to the natural world.

Opened: from Saturday 9 April to Tuesday 26 April 2022
Location: corner of Supply Road and South Crescent, Callan Park

Being outdoors gives children the opportunity to explore, discover, and learn at their own pace – creating a special connection to their surroundings. 
Whether it’s building a cubby house, climbing a tree, following animal tracks, or creating a work of art out of leaves and sticks - Nature Play ensures children and their caregivers have ample opportunities to connect to the unique heritage and ecology of the Australian landscape and to who they are inside, together.

Taking community feedback onboard, our passionate nature educators will be onsite during the school holidays. Join them for their hourly activity sessions and story time from 10am-2:30pm weekdays (excluding public holidays).

Stay tuned for news about future play spaces at Callan Park in the winter school holidays by signing up to our e-newsletter. We're also excited to bring our Nature Play play space to a permanent location in the Park and will be consulting with the community for feedback. 

The Nature Play program include fun outdoor weekly activities.
