Archikidz at Hyde Park Barracks
This June long weekend, blue skies and the red bricks of the Hyde Park Barracks provided the perfect backdrop for our inaugural PLAY[ground] event.
Presented by Sydney Living Museums and Archikidz, this fantastic event saw the Barrack’s grounds converted into the city’s biggest playground.
They say that if you build it they will come, and come they did - almost 6,000 children across 3 glorious winter days – all ready to explore, jump, climb, swing and more. Archikidz believes that great cities need great public spaces for people of all ages to come together. We wanted to inspire kids, our future thinkers and city-makers. Letting kids ideas about the shape of our future city be seen and heard.
A huge thanks to everyone who came and took part at the event, the first of its kind set within the UNESCO World Heritage grounds of the Hyde Park Barracks, one of the most significant convict sites in the world.
Here are some fun pics of the day that capture some of the vibrancy of this immersive event, see more fun filled events for the family here.
