Mamma it's Shark Week - I mean - It's PARK WEEK! March 4 - 12, 2017 is Park and Leisure Australia's annual celebration of all things parks - and we all know us Mamma's love a great park and playground. What makes this year pretty special is certain spaces around the West have turned a little more magical with the augmented reality app Magical Park! Think along the lines of Pokemon Go but with three different themes - dinosaurs, fairies and aliens. Use your phone to explore a digital world where you chase kittens and follow unicorns as you navigate your way around the physical space. What makes this game a little special is it's geofenced - meaning they only work in a set location. You have to be in a registered park for the game to work and what an awesome way to get to know some of your local areas. Mamma tested out the app at Commonwealth Reserve in Williamstown and it really does work.
The West has a couple of council zones that have jumped on board for the duration of Park Week and you can test out the game at ... Woodlea Park in Melton, Livvi's Place in Ballarat and Whittington Link in Geelong.
