The Cultural Centre Playspace is a small playground located outside the Perth Museum, a space for kids to make some exciting sounds, explore the carved wooden critters and expend some energy while parents and carers have a seat.
This is an inner-city play space – constructed with wood, sand, woodchips and soft fall material but there are no gardens or grassed area. Technically designed for kids 6 to 12, smaller children will still enjoy the numerous musical and optical elements.
There are a number of musical instruments set into the space – metal bongo drums, chimes, and a xylophone which can be hit with the accompanying hammers. There are large metal bowls reminiscent of Tibetan singing bowls. They make a beautiful sound, even when being beaten mercilessly by a small child.
The Playspace is a few minutes walk from the Perth central train station and within a few hundred metres of other fabulous spaces such as the frog pond, the Urban Orchard, the State Library and a short walk from the Northbridge Piazza.
