A children’s playground with a difference, the Nature Play space encourages children to interact with nature; to explore and learn about their surroundings.

It integrates creative play elements with the natural lakeside environment. Features include dinosaur bones to uncover, ropes to climb, play huts to build, a fairy garden, rope climb, tunnels and a digging patch, as well as new pathways, bubblers, irrigation, signage and CCTV.

The nature play concept supports unstructured outdoor play, which has been shown to have a positive impact on children’s cognitive and physical development. It focuses on enjoying the outdoors and exploring the simple wonders of the surroundings.
