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.

Speaking tubes are spread throughout the area, and although they are colour-coded, there are so many you don’t often know who you will end up speaking to.

A raised wooden platform holds two spinning optical wheels and a warped mirror which doesn’t do much good for your self-esteem, though the kids will love it.

For older kids, there are a number of balancing elements such as walking stilts and rocks to clamber over.

Throughout the space are beautifully hand carved animals such a lizard bench which you can climb on, a painted pond, a beautiful hard carved seat with a bird and a tall fish totem-like pole.

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.
