Digital fantasy land for kids
THE last day of Magical Parks coincides with Australia Day so if you cannot bear facing the foreshore crowds why not take the littlies down to your local park for some virtual fun.
The event that began this week allows children of all ages to explore a digital fantasy land playground using a mobile device and the Magical Park app.
Expect to walk with the dinosaurs or simply share a toadstool seat with a fairy.
The Magical Parks app, produced by Geo AR Games, is free and intended for 6 to 12 yearolds.
The boundaries for the game are set within limited areas of the parks, so check the City’s website or at the parks for details.
People playing Magical Park are urged to be considerate of other park users.
The magical parks involved are:
Fantasy Park – Rand Avenue, Waikiki;
Surf Drive Reserve – 11 D’Arole Turn, Secret Harbour;
Len Pike Reserve – 11 Rankin Meander, Baldivis;
Solquest Park – corner of Solquest Way and Tehani Close, Cooloongup; and
Round Hill Reserve – corner Round Hill and Gypsum Cove, Port Kennedy.
Magical Parks is a free event by the City of Rockingham.
