Sovereign Hill launches $1.7M Play Space
Sovereign Hill will celebrate National Children’s Week by opening its new $1.7 million Play Space on Wednesday, 24 October 2018.
The Play Space is an all-new adventure land for children up to eight years old. Unique to Sovereign Hill and designed around a goldrush theme, the space includes a sailing ship two-storeys high and a jetty and row boat. There is a full-size coach with carved horses, a poppet head with a large slide, a rock-climbing wall and a mining tunnel with an ore truck. A six sensory herb garden stands to one side and a gazebo overlooks a lake on the other.
The Play Space will cater for individual interests and abilities, allowing children to test and extend themselves through play. It will support a diversity of play styles, encouraging children and their families to explore, question and learn through experiences that are ‘hands-on’, tactile and exciting.
The Official Launch will be attended by Geoff Howard MP, Sovereign Hill’s CEO Terry Lloyd, and school children. In celebration of National Children’s Week, any child visiting Sovereign Hill for the day will be given free entry when accompanied by a paying adult.
