At Finn Street in O’Connor, children can enjoy a new a natural amphitheatre and a loose parts shop with small objects such as sticks, rocks, logs and other natural elements. The children can use these to build and create. Additional trees and plants will form natural goal posts and add different textures to engage children’s sense of touch.
