Designing play spaces for resilient children

Experience childhood learning and outdoor play first-hand in an informative and playful guided tour of two of Kings Park’s play spaces. Visit both Ivey Watson Playground, specifically designed for children under six years, and Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park, one of the world’s first nature-based discovery and learning facility.

Consider factors when designing play spaces including purpose, safety, accessibility and aesthetics. Students discuss how the environment provides opportunities for children to practice the skills essential for healthy childhood development.
