SYDNEY, 14 JUNE 2021
Keeping kids entertained is a breeze at Ed.Square Town. Centre, Frasers Property Australia's game- changing Town Centre, with an engaging, inclusive new children's play area, along with a new parent's room and more shops set to open on June 24th.
A major new indoor, all weather play area for kids will be unveiled and four new shops will open to complement the family-friendly vibe in south west Sydney's best-connected dining and entertainment destination.
Boost Juice, Medispecs, The Shed Café and Manhattan Jewellery will open on June 24th. Then, in July, Just Sport will open its doors. The new shops and amenities will open up the south mall precinct in Ed.Square Town Centre.
Designed by Three Fishes in partnership with Tilt Industrial Design, the 120 sqm new indoor children's play area will be located on the ground level of the Town Centre.
The brand-new facility will comprise two age-specific playscape areas. The junior area for kids aged up to four years will feature a 'Junior Cube' with a crawl tube, vertical forest, and activity wall. There will also be an inclusive kaleidoscope cubby for children of all ages and abilities to explore.
A key feature in the main area for kids aged from three to seven years are the hanging pods, which measure up to 3.8-metres off the ground. Ideal for climbing, the gumnut-shaped hanging pods are inspired by the native species in the area and come down from the attached slide. There is also a mini trampoline, rock climbing wall and two additional slides in the area to keep little ones entertained.
Plenty of seating, a new fully fitted parents' room and toilets will be nearby to complete the family-friendly space, and with an abundance of dining and coffee choices in the Town Centre, parents are well looked after.
"The design of the play space ensures that children can safely challenge themselves, socialise, learn from each other and enjoy time with their families," says Amanda Whittle, Senior Property Manager, Frasers Property Australia.
"Families at Ed.Square and across the region are already enjoying a range of entertainment options such as the outdoor water play area, iPlay and Event Cinemas. With the new indoor play space and more shops now coming to the Town Centre, Ed.Square's appeal as a unique and vibrant destination for the whole family is growing," he says.
As the Town Centre becomes even more family-friendly, it is also about to become more visually appealing.
Also opening in June are two new artworks, Bloom and Ping Pong 1000, designed by James Dive from Scoundrel Projects.
Bloom connects the main internal thoroughfares of the centre with an assortment of 15 huge poppy flower designs vertically suspended from the ceiling. The piece pays homage to the site's heritage as the former Ingleburn Army Camp Site, the first purpose-built camp to train Australian infantry for combat in World War
II. Each flower spans 1.5 metres and is positioned 3.5 metres above the ground, giving life and meaning to
the ceiling space.
Ping Pong 1000 is a playful representation of a seemingly endless table tennis tournament being played by
people from all sections of the community. The artwork features hundreds of faces, with no two faces the same, on spirited bodies playing countless ping pong matches around countless ping pong tables. The active
scene is activated by the image of hundreds of ping pong balls that appear to fly right towards the viewer.
The new artworks follow the 2020 unveiling of Dive's work Greetings, the grand statement piece that occupies the vast exterior wall of the main entry to the Town Centre.
Ed.Square Town Centre has been a bustling hive of activity in recent months.
