Magical Park is a digital game designed for kids from 6-11 years of age that uses geospatial Augmented Reality. It turns a normal park into a fantasy world that gets kids off the couch and physically active outside within safe boundaries.

Magical Park is geofenced, which means the game can only be play in a selected park and doesn’t require the user to go on roads or leave the designated area.

The Magical Parks experience will be live in Palmerston at the Marlow Lagoon Recreation Reserve Oval from Saturday 7 July until Sunday 15 July.
