Bugging out at Bugz PlayPark!

With the Easter holidays upon us, we have the perfect suggestion for getting the littlies hop, hop, hopping with glee – at Bugz PlayPark.

Once upon a time, a South African couple had a huge yet humble dream. They set off on an adventure one day with a horse and a hotdog stand in their company. They, unwittingly, became the catalysts for what is now the largest (and arguably, coolest) playpark in the Western Cape. And the legend lives on.

It’s Playtime
At Bugz Playpark, every free play activity purposefully engages the imagination of the child, fostering development in key areas such as problem solving and character building. Here, they have oodles of fun and simultaneously build muscles and key life skills. Kids can build their muscles (and stretch imaginations) on the pedal cars, swing horses, rowboats, mini tractor rides, water slides, a worm train, mud-kitchen, jungle gyms, a choo-choo train and the ever-popular Megan’s Petting farm. All these assist in developing their cognitive, physical and emotional skills; essential abilities for equipping them for life outside of the classroom, TV lounge or tech suite.

Fun in the Sun
The park is mostly outdoors sporting sunshine, shade, party pavilions and even splash pads for those long, hot summer days. My toddler, a real ‘water baby’ was in his element. Afterwards, he enjoyed his first ever pony ride. This is a memory that our little family will always cherish. Thank you, Bugz Playpark!

A tip: Pack swimming costume and a change of dry clothes for your tot. More woo-hoo, less boo-hoo!

Come rain or shine
When the rain clouds roll in, you can still make a beeline for Bugz. The enormous indoor tent houses a sizeable toddler-friendly soft play area perfect for chasing those rainy day blues away. They also have various indoor party theme pods in this area. Hippity-hop on to their website to design your little angel’s unique party. There are many amazing themes to choose from making your party planning as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Nosh Time
A variety of inspired family friendly meal options abound in the park. Strategically placed refreshment stops ensure rumbling tummies are swiftly satisfied and thirsts slaked. The Bugz barista will keep the coffee lovers amongst us very happy indeed.

A tip: Enquire about dietary or religious requirements in advance to ensure your culinary experience is tiptop.

Whoo who and when
The park is ideal for two-to- ten-year- olds. Most of the token rides are for 3 year-olds plus as they require a certain degree of autonomy. The Park is open 364 days of the year between 9am and 5pm. Rides are open during weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Token rides, however, are only open on sunny weekends, public holidays and school holidays.
