An Enchanted Woodland Play Park Comes to Life

A vacant tenancy at Robina Town Centre was given an enchanting makeover to turn an unloved space into a brand new Woodland Play Park, creating an imaginative and educational destination for young shoppers to enjoy, while their parents can watch on, coffee in hand, before, during or after a successful shopping trip.


The external façade delights with full colour forest graphic onto the glass and signage intertwined with artificial forest greenery.


The area was divided into different zones to break up the space, with a pint-sized grocery store featuring an entry archway, shopping baskets, grocery items, wooden trollies and kid-friendly cash register to complete the shopping experience.

A handcut pebble pathway winds through the space with timber bridges for children to drive along and over on cute ladybug or bumble bee ride ons.  2016-tph-robina-woodland-play-park-028

A toddler activity area incorporating a play panels, trees, toadstool pillows, turf and animal bowling  provide mess free play for the younger kids.


A library nook area provides a quieter space for children with the option of small chairs and tables for activities or a tee pee tent where kids can read their books on the stunning log, stone and mushroom cushions.

And last but certainly not least, a cozy space featuring a selection of amazing woodland themed life size plush toys for children to play with and sit on, and a moving mother owl with baby owl nestled in the tree above.   2016-tph-robina-woodland-play-park-015
