The mighty Aurasaurus has roared into life at Aura.
The first of its kind in Australia, this custom-designed dinosaur structure reaches an impressive 21m in length and stretches 6.6m into the sky, casting a mighty shadow on all who dare to approach.
Not only designed to wow, Aura’s newest playground is filled with unique play experiences on and off the dinosaur. While climbing through the belly of the beast, children can interact with optic panels, sound shakers, swaying pods and seats, climbing discs and membrane bridges or climb up the gigantic 3-dimensional octahedron climbing net. There’s plenty more to discover once you escape out the mouth or slide down the tail. Little palaeontologists will enjoy the rest of the prehistoric themed playground that features dinosaur eggs and an archaeological dig sandpit. Families will love watching children explore the dinosaur and surrounds while also making use of the picnic tables, barbeques, and hammocks that fill the rest of the park.
Aurasaurus doesn’t stop at fun but also offers a wealth of development opportunities to physical, social, cognitive and communication skills. The sway and bouncing of the net helps children develop their spatial awareness and balance while the dichroic panels casts colourful shadows across the ground to add to an already sensory-rich experience. Play is an essential part of childhood development and all equipment has been carefully selected to provide a variety of movements and activities such as climbing, sliding, swinging and balancing all of which work to build important motor skills, cross-body coordination, and spatial awareness.
The Aurasaurus is the newest playground that Urban Play has brought to life with Place Design Group, Stockland, Eureka Landscapes, and KOMPAN Australia.
Is there anything better than a dinosaur-themed playground? We don’t think so, and once you see Aura Dino Park for yourself, you will agree. Stocklands have gone beyond the standard playground design with this bright, engaging, Jurrasic play space. The playground’s centrepiece is a huge dinosaur construction with a climbable tail and head and webbed netting for the kids to climb.
