Where children play, create and learn.
ArtPlay is a place where children – from babies to 12 year olds – can explore their creativity and share unique artistic experiences with professional artists.
They have more than 300 workshops, events and performances every year. There are short workshops for young children and extended creative experiences for older children. The artists, workshop content and participants reflect Melbourne’s diversity.
It is also the only playground in Melbourne’s CBD, with slides, sand pits, swinging hammocks, activity panels, rock and rope climbing features and balance beams.
Bookings are required for most events, however there are also free drop-in workshops available. Be sure to check out what’s on before dropping by. Located behind Federation Square, next to the Yarra River – look out for the red brick building next to the playground.
