Where The Fun Grows | Waverley Gardens

In collaboration with the 151 Property design team, the Magic Garden at Waverly gardens Shopping centre is a fresh addition to the food court precinct.

Taking full advantage of the space, PlayOn! have created an area that evokes happiness and promotes a collaborative playtime for children aged 1-5, an age group where active exploration and peer interaction is becoming key to development.

While catering to the children, the area also accommodates parental supervision with a large amount of seating provided, helping to create a social community within the centre.

About this project

In research undertaken by Innovative Retail in relation to Shopping centre play areas, a core theme emerged that noticed the play facilities in centres play a considerable role in forming ritual behaviour.

PlayOn! have built upon this theme to deliver inclusive areas that both foster parent/child bonding and craft a social atmosphere for parents.
