Park & Play

School Terms Only

Play is fun for children, and it’s a great way for youngsters to learn about the world and each other. Park and Play is an activity of the Communities for Children Shellharbour initiative funded by the Australian Government. Park and Play brings children and their carers together in a safe and enjoyable environment.

Park & Play is currently offered in the Shellharbour local government area and involves free weekly play sessions in parks and outdoor areas for children aged 0-5 years and their parents and carers. The sessions are supported by friendly trained staff. Through Park and Play, parents and carers get to meet other adults caring for young children in their area, and also get to pick up new ideas for fun play activities that can be recreated at home.

How do I get involved?

You will find the times and locations of Park and Play sessions below. Simply turn up with your children, or contact Family Services Australia if you need more information.
