A play centre that’s great for the littlies in your family
I must confess something - taking my daughter to a play centre is one of my least favourite activities. Yes, yes, I know - shock horror! She is just under two and I tend to find that the typically tiny areas dedicated to toddlers get overrun by the big kids and it gets on my goat.
With a large play area for toddlers and no older kids to take over, my little girl enjoyed a play with kids her own age. She particularly loved the little playhouse, which was a popular attraction for the toddlers.
There's a ball pit with a slide, but it requires a climb up some uneven steps, so not all kids will be able to access the slide. There are aso a couple of smaller slides in the play area, plus a small bouncing castle.
Outside of the toddler area, there is another, separate area with small slides and climbing equipment, which I assume is for younger toddlers. There are two big bouncy castles, an air hockey table and lots of little areas with games and activities.
Whereas some play centres completely segregate the older and younger kids, this centre has made an attempt to integrate young and old – perhaps it's an attempt to keep the big kids out of the single designated toddler area.
The Playground has a café and restaurant area, which serves kids' meals and snacks, plus hot beverages and meals for adults. They also run birthday parties and on Tuesdays, kids can enter the play centre for just $5 all day during school terms.
