The amazing grounds of the Werribee Park Mansion at K Road, Werribee, is the venue for the much-anticipated Children's Week Picnic; a free entry event on Sunday 22 October 2017 from 10am to 4pm. Thanks to Wyndham City, all you need to do is kick back on the grass and enjoy the day.

You can either bring your own hamper of goodies for your picnic pleasure, or you could have your foodie desires fulfilled by the food trucks on the day. If you're bringing your own picnic, watch out for your hamper, as human-sized ants and giant snails from Polyglot Theatre will be roaming through the park.

Activities will be spread across four precincts, with a live stage program, a chill out zone, a 'come and try' sports area and an arts experience zone featuring Footscray Community Arts Centre and portable art space Nebula.

A free line-up of music along with your favourite characters from Despicable Me 3, is the order of the day. Lawn games, hip-hop, sports activities, circus skills, carousel rides, you name it, there's plenty to keep the kids happy. Why not try making your own puppet at a workshop with Trash Puppets. If you'd like to trade a pre-loved toy, bring it along to the Toy Swap station. There'll be a fully accessible toilet and breastfeeding facilities, along with a wheelchair swing so no one has to miss out.
