Sensory play is the focus of Harmony Gardens. Located within the broader Dutton Park recreational space, this whimsical butterfly-themed playground caters for visitors of all abilities.

Surrounding the playground is a wavy pathway, adorned with lovely mosaic butterflies (these were made in collaboration with local school students). There are two brightly coloured forts, once of which offers tactile sand play with pulleys, buckets and chutes. The other fort is much smaller, with a mock cafe/shop underneath.
