Kids outdoor play day

Saturday 20 July, 11am-3pm

A fun-filled event focused on kids’ interaction and active movement in nature. The program will include a range of activities like classic backyard and school games, slack-lining, natural movement, circus activities, live music and more.

Place plan theme: Health + Fitness
'To meet the recreational needs of the local community.'

Dates:
Saturday 20 July, 11am-3pm

Location:
Adjacent to Watson and Masson streets, Turner.

Observation:
There are limited formal opportunities for active play and recreation in Haig Park. Limited user diversity contributes to lower usage, visitation and perception of safety in the park.

Hypothesis:
Events focused on enriching children's experience of Haig Park can contribute to greater park visitation and improves perception.

Favourable outcomes

A free one-day event attended by children across a range of ages and from diverse backgrounds with positive feedback. Increased awareness and use of larger infrastructure experiments.
