Play + Family

Children and families at the heart of our community. We are passionate about the power of play to unite, bond, and free.

Felix Road Adventure Playground is at the heart of this work, but not confined to it. We aspire to create playful and child-friendly neighbourhoods which foster community connection and unity. Family life in the inner city can be tough we want to give families and children access to fantastic play spaces, parks and child-friendly streets.
