Boats is an adventurous play space for children of all ages, using colourful vessels to navigate urban sea scapes.
At a central mooring place, large light weight boats await patiently for children’s imagination and energy. Once aboard, the boats are propelled by a flurry of feet, with kids working as a crew to find their own path and voyage across the high seas. As they journey Polyglot artists float as castaways to be rescued or as mysterious elements of the deep blue sea. Together they guide the boats to safe harbour ready for new crew, and the next adventure!
Boats engages children in play that reimagines the familiar and concrete into something more flexible and fun.
Boats is commissioned by Federation Square.
