Landscape architecture and urban design firm Aspect Studios has transformed the Level 1 concrete forecourt leading into Hoyts Cinemas into a colourful place of respite and play. It features sensational foam equipment by Imagination Playground, a ping pong table, a Movenpick ice cream van and coffee cart plus a curated program of free fun events.

As a parent I’m particularly enamoured of the open-ended foam pieces for endless hours of creative play. I watched the kids transform the blue blocks into a boat, a marble run, domino fall and obstacle course – it’s instinct, they know what to do!

Footscray’s Women’s Circus are facilitating play workshops today and on another five dates (see below) and they brought along props, circus equipment and musical instruments to add to the play experience. Lady AB and Baby 2.0 had fun spinning hoops, strumming ukeleles and shaking maracas while engaging in some imaginative play.
