Closure dates from 1 August to 31 August 2018.
The Ian Potter Children's Wild Play Garden will take an annual break every August. During this time our Garden's plants will be taking a rest and we will be adding an additional 2,000 new plants before we reopen in spring.
The Garden will also be rejuvenated in other areas including new paths for kids to explore. More information about the work being done during the annual break can be viewed here.
Open from 10 am - 5 pm daily, the Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden is New South Wales' first state-of-the-art nature-play facility.
Centennial Park's new $4 million nature play space was designed to engage the five senses and help urban children reconnect with nature.
What makes Sydney’s new nature-play experience for kids different?
WILD PLAY provides children with the chance to get lost in the wonder of nature – there’s dry creek beds, an artesian water play area, a bamboo forest, banksia tunnels, turtle mounds and Centennial Park’s first treehouse.
WILD PLAY is a dramatic landscape in which children are encouraged to run, jump, play, learn and discover the wild side of life!
Visit the Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden today!

It is important to note that from time-to-time, operational changes in the Park may mean that we will need to temporarily close the WILD PLAY Garden. Keep an eye on the website for details.
