Welcome to Play Outside Day, an event designed to get your body and soul moving amongst the trees and tracks of Haig Park.

There will be slacklining, dancing, family yoga, orienteering, aerial sports, nature play (including mud play!), and garden games available.

Get ready for fun performances, face painting, a huge kinetic cockatoo called Cosmo, and live music with even more activities to be announced.

Suitcase Rummage is a mini-market with giant rewards. Come for a bargain, a swap, or an old-fashioned haggle. Anyone wanting to sell their wares needs to register with Suitcase Rummage prior to the event here.

Remember, we’re all kids at heart and there is no age restriction on playing.

Performances, activities, and different types of outdoor play will fill accessible spots above Mort and Lonsdale Streets in the park, for everyone to engage with. Toilets for people of all abilities are available directly next to a path.

When: Saturday 1 May 2021, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
