Centennial Park will soon be home to Sydney’s first $4M children’s ‘WILD PLAY’ garden and within the new 6,000 square metre state-of-the-art facility will be the Parklands’ first ever treehouse tower, complete with a giant slide and rope bridges!
Conceptualised by Fleetwood Urban, the treehouse comprises of all natural elements and timbers and will be one of the main featured areas within the Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden.
What is so special about the treehouse?
Surrounded by a lush bamboo forest, the treehouse will form part of an immersive and dense grove environment with narrow sandy trails, small clearings and canopy to explore. Enclosed rope bridges will take children up to the treehouse look out point, high above the forest, and a large slide will send them back down to the forest floor.
The nature-inspired setting offers numerous Educational outcomes for little ones, including:
Understanding of botanical diversity through hands on interaction;
Development of spatial awareness through elevated platforms and enclosed vertical planting;
Development of spatial skills through the negotiation of vertical structures.
