One of Perth’s favourite and original nature playgrounds will be closing on Wednesday, 1st February for a full year, before a planned re-opening in early 2018 after a massive $3 million renovation.

When it opened in 2011, the Rio Tinto Naturescape in Kings Park was the first of its kind in the world and has largely contributed to leading the way in changing attitudes towards the importance of unstructured, outdoor play.



Covering a huge six hectares (60,000 square metres) the playground includes an Education Zone with outdoor classrooms plus an actual creek, ropes courses, places to build cubbies, log bridges and more, and is totally surrounded by beautiful natural bushland.

Schools of Early Learning offer education and care for children aged 6 months to 6 years.

With the backing of partner Rio Tinto, the new expansion will see the size of the creek expand and the creation of a rock pool and rocky escarpment. There will be a new cubby zone, hidden tunnel and lots of new climbing features.

One of the most exciting new projects will be the Sky Scramble – an aerial walkway expected to be almost seven metres high and made with recycled wood and steel mesh.

The renovations, which will see the playground closed for the rest of 2017 means that even more Perth kids and visitors will be able to get even more wet, muddy and exited.
