Kids, Festivals Free

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

There's a gentle intruder in the Olympic Park – an appealingly designed, 2.5-metre high wooden snail. Step inside the shell to find a space for storytelling and activities themed around home and belonging, aimed at ages 4-11. The design team behind the project is Darling and Edge, who are also behind immersive restaurant Gingerline. Their kids' offering, which can be found opposite the Timber Lodge Café and Tumbling Bay Playground in the north of the park, hosts storytelling trails with slow-moving residents Sheldon and Shelby at noon and 3pm, as well as being open for reading, colouring and drawing all day (Sat, Sun 10am-6pm, Tue, Wed 11am-2pm). Look out also for workshops to construct a nest (Aug 22 & 29).
