Pia’s Place is the new state-of-the-art, all abilities, fully enclosed play space at Whiteman Park and officially opened on 15th December 2019.
It is located opposite the enclosed dog parks at Mussel Pool East.
The nature-based play space spans a whopping 8,000 square meters and is designed to encourage inclusive play. The whole place is designed to be accessible to children of all abilities, including children with mobility issues and wheelchair users, and those with cognitive, sensory or social and emotional challenges.
There are also the usual sand and water play stations, flying fox, slides, swings, tunnels, nests and walkways. But they also have several large role-play structures including the carriage below plus a boat and a train.
Pia’s Place features quiet nooks, cosy corners and perch points which allow kids to observe before they dive in and play.
The centrepiece of the park is the lighthouse which beckons everyone to come and explore! You can get amazing views over the park from the top, but for those who can’t or don’t want to climb, you can also see the view inside the tunnel on screens!
