The fantastical world of make believe comes alive in Toowoomba

Toowoomba is a buzz with the imminent opening of the Magical Witch’s Forest Playground at the Heller Street Park, Picnic Point.  But as every child knows, every good fairytale needs a hero.

And while local Princesses and brave Knights will be queuing to live out the adventure when the park opens on Friday the 14th of January, it won’t be until January when our Heroes’ will have a house of their own.

Known as “Old Smithy” the second structure features a quaint tree-house feel complete with a precisely engineered slide for a fast exist when marauders approach.

Jeff Wilson, from Playrope, the Australian Distributor of Spielart, the manufacturer of the equipment, says, “Each piece of Spielart equipment is hand carved and unique, it’s made of super tough Robinia timber and designed to cope with all the punishment kids (and the weather) can throw at it.”

But it’s more than that, Spielart is imagination brought to life, it’s designed to be fun, quirky, off beat and imaginative. And the kids can’t resist it. In fact, I think most adults will be hoping they can play too!”

“Toowoomba City Council are leading the charge to create playgrounds that appeal to modern kids, get them off the couch and into the fresh air. They really should be applauded for their dedication to creating attractions that make playgrounds fun.
