The Ian Potter Children’s Wild Garden will consist of dedicated natural spaces including Artesian water play, creek beds, bamboo forests and outdoor classrooms, all designed to inspire and encourage children to engage in exciting, creative and imaginative outdoor ‘wild play’. The state of the art facility will be located adjacent to the existing Education Precinct off Dickens Drive in Centennial Park.
One of the areas in the new Garden will be The Artesian Water Play, which will include a ‘spring’ as the water source from which the water will run over the rocks and pool in a bubbling basin for kids to splash about in. There will also be an amazing Treehouse surrounded by a lush bamboo forest, with a hanging rope bridge and a giant slide.
Gates are due to open to the public October 19, 2017. Access to the Garden will be via a pathway off Grand Drive near the York Road Gates area.
