Child playing in Pirate Park

Playgrounds

Our playgrounds provide opportunities for children to engage in physical, cognitive, unstructured and social play, regardless of a child’s age, capability or developmental stage.  They offer a diverse number of play activities, which is essential for children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.   

The playgrounds accommodate families with children and their play needs across a variety of ages. Parents are encouraged to actively play with and must supervise their children at all times.
