THE first robot-themed park in Western Australia was buzzing with youngsters keen to try out the equipment, including a robot-themed cubby house, flying fox, basketball half-court, climbing structures and tunnel slides.

Other highlights of the event included a stilt walking android, futuristic chill out area, a ‘make a robot’ workshop, Scitech interactive exhibit, face painting, balloon artistry and live entertainment.

Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton opened the $2.5 million park with Darling Range MLA Tony Simpson and Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones.

“We are expecting the robot park to become a drawcard for the region as it is a unique, outstanding facility that allows kids of all ages to let their imaginations run wild,” Mr Dutton said.

The park also has shaded seating, barbecue and picnic tables, drinking fountains, toilets, pathways to walk, ride or scooter along, and large grassed area.
