Opening Hours

River Terrace

Where children play, create and learn.

ArtPlay is a place where children – from babies to pre-teens- can explore their creativity and share unique artistic experiences with professional artists.

Hosting more than 300 workshops, events and performances every year, from short workshops for young children and extended creative experiences for older children, the artists, workshops and participants are a reflection of Melbourne’s diversity.

It is also the only playground in Melbourne’s CBD, with slides, sandpits, 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.

It’s behind Federation Square, next to the Yarra River – look out for the red brick building next to the playground.
