Shopping centres are transforming themselves into appealing destinations for families and Chadstone Shopping Centre is no exception.

On the Lower Ground Floor, between Kmart and Toys R Us, you will find a series of four timber play pod areas.

They are designed to provide young children (mostly under 5s) with a chance to play, imagine and interact – while their carers have a sit-down!

The pods include a pretend cafe, shop front, digital games, button activated LED lighting, 3D ducks, frogs, dogs and sandcastles.

Rounding out the interactive play are projections on two of the Play Pods, including a fish pond.

The Play Pods are each small and form a trail that you can explore, or just visit one or two. Note that they are not fenced so adults still need to actively supervise.

For more great shopping centre playgrounds check out Eastland, The Sticks at Highpoint and Box Hill Central.
