Nature Play Spaces


“Our environments will determine the sum of our children’s worlds”


About Nature Play Spaces

Awareness of the benefits of children’s contact with nature is growing.  These benefits include:

  • Keeping children physically active
  • Improving children’s overall wellbeing
  • Engaging and enchanting children in outdoor play for longer periods of time
  • Increased resilience
  • Building risk assessment awareness
  • Developing strong connections with nature
  • Growing children’s social capacity
  • Improving and refining children's physical skills

Many organisations are embracing the idea of developing nature play spaces within their educational setting or local park environment. 

We know that getting started can be tricky, so Nature Play QLD simplified the process and put together information, workshops and resources to help you develop nature play spaces that are also impressive, stimulating and inspiring.
