Orion Mega Playground
With inbuilt trampolines and a huge skywalk Bridge, Urban Play has once again created an incredible play space for kids at Orion Springfield Centre that defies belief. Orion mega playground is one of those playgrounds that will have your kids gasping in wonderment and asking for return visits.
The Fun of Orion Mega Playground
Community consultation from Orion Shopping Centre has resulted in a playground that is accessible and engaging for all ages. This is a playground that is designed to offer a reprieve for parents as they shop but also stands on its own as a destination playground and will encourage families to get out and about with their kids.
Towering 11 metres above the playground is a huge, colourful activity tower that is filled with play activities for kids. To access the activity tower, kids will walk an impressive 16-metre long skywalk bridge giving them a birds-eye view over the expansive outdoor playground.
There are huge tunnel slides to take them back down to the ground, swings, smaller activity sections for little kids and shade sails keeping everyone out of the sun on warmer days. We love the in-ground trampoline and the embankment with mountaineering ropes as offering something different than most standard playgrounds.
This wonderful Springfield playground even has a cognitive play hut to inspire little ones with play opportunities everywhere the eye looks. Their swings accommodate both the independent child and the toddlers who need a little bit more help from their parents (or grandparents). There is a lot to love about this playground!
The skywalk will encourage a rich level of imaginative play, with a rare opportunity for kids to experience heights and explore feelings that come from that sense of empowerment. Urban Play has really aimed to create an open space, to inspire free play, scaffolded by a range of different play experiences.
