About the project: Kukundi Nature Playspace & Trail

In 2016, Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife partnered with SC Johnson to revitalise the former Kukundi precinct into a Nature Playspace and Trail area in Lane Cove National Park.

The partnership helped to fund the creation of the Kukundi Nature Playspace and installation of Nature Play equipment for kids to play in nature. Nature play encourages kids and parents to see the natural environment and National Parks as a place to enjoy, play, imagine, relax and explore.

Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife and our Backyard Buddies education program encourages outdoor play so it becomes a normal part of every child's life, so that they can develop into resilient, healthy and creative members of the community.

Nature play is a term used to describe the creation of simple play opportunities in the natural environment. Nature play encourages kids and parents to see the natural environment and National Parks as a place to enjoy, play, imagine, relax and explore.
