The Pod Playground, National Arboretum, Canberra
Designed to challenge and excite, Pod Playground encourages children to climb, explore and have fun. Pod Playground is a unique and adventurous playground featuring giant acorn cubbies, nest swings and banksia pods, surrounded by spectacular views.
Pod Playground delights a variety of age groups. The giant acorn cubbies on stilts, connected by net tunnels and ending in a spiral slippery slide, suit older children (late primary and up), as does the large climbing net frame.
For younger children, Pod includes a single ladder leading into a single giant acorn cubbie with a normal-sized slide.
The middle area of Pod Playground caters for children with a range of ages, with two large nest swings and two toddler swings.
At the café end of the playground there is a wonderful area for toddlers with giant banksia cones, sand, and musical instruments.
The musical bridge appeals to all ages.
The playground is open seven days a week.
Parking on site is a maximum of $7.50 for the day, or $2 for 1 hour.
The playground is set within the grounds of the National Arboretum, which itself provides ample opportunities for fun and learning in nature!
The Village Centre with cafe and gift shop are close by.
