Creative play these school holidays

26 March 2019

The Playful Endeavour loose-parts playground returns for the Easter school holidays, but this time in Glebe Park, Civic.

A collection of found and made materials selected to encourage creative play and social interaction will keep children entertained throughout the school holidays.

Families are encouraged to head into Civic during the school holidays to experience imaginative play and spend time exploring the broader city precinct.

The Playful Endeavour is provided by the City Renewal Authority to encourage more families to come into the city. It is being operated by Green Hat Workshop, which hosts loose-parts playgrounds around the country.

The play equipment is easily moved, adapted, joined and experimented with, which encourages self-directed, open-ended play, a growth mindset, interpersonal skills and fun.

The self-directed nature of loose-parts play engages all ages and abilities and complements the traditional fixed play equipment and sports equipment that most Australian children already have access to.

This event has been made possible via the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy.

When: 10am – 4pm, 13 - 26 April*

Where: Glebe Park

*Open from 1pm – 4pm on Anzac Day (25 April)
