What's on at Kids Collective - Roma Street Parkland

Finding things to do during the school holidays doesn’t have to be a challenge, Kids Collective at Roma Street Parkland have done all of the hard work for you! Kids Collective is the new name for school holiday activities at Roma Street Parkland, previously known as Sprouts in the Park.

Kids Collective Roma Street Parkland

During school holidays, the parkland is buzzing with free activities for kids aged 5-12 years old – soak up some fresh air while growing your own seedling, kicking a soccer ball, creating your own arts and craft masterpiece plus more.

Activities are held from 9am-1pm, Thursday to Saturday, during school holidays. There are two classes to choose from on any given day and bookings are not required. Not sure what time you’ll make it? That’s ok – classes are re-set at regular intervals, so you can come and go as you please. There’s also food trucks on site if you want to grab a bite to eat during your visit.

To plan your day, check out the program below. Activities change every holidays, so there’s always something new to try. And don’t forget – if you have young kids to entertain, Kids Collective at South Bank Parklands (designed for kids aged 0-5) is on Thursdays from 9am-1pm. Please note that due to seasonal events, Kids Collective is not on at Roma Street Parkland or South Bank during December and January.
