To promote an active lifestyle, the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) Park has expanded and developed its children’s playground.

The new playground has doubled in size and offers a place for children to develop strength, coordination, balance and enhance their social skills through new equipment and spaces. The new playground, provided and installed by Swedish company Hags, provides a vibrant space and lively environment for development and play for children of all ages. There are now three distinct, age-appropriate spaces with exciting play equipment. There is a fun space for 2-5 year old children with play equipment that helps to develop motor skills and coordination. A larger playground allows 5-12 year old children to explore and take part in activities that develop balance and strength. Lastly a playground for 12-16 year olds has been designed to test coordination abilities and to support body strength of growing teenagers.

The playgrounds will open to the public on Thursday 30 January 2014 and will be accessible to the public during normal MIA Park operating hours.
