On 09 December 2017, the Western Cape’s largest and most beloved playpark celebrated a huge milestone birthday. Bugz Playpark marked their 10th birthday with an exclusive bash to celebrate a decade of parties, play dates, and fun – and we got to join in the celebrations.
Besides having access to the entire park and rides, guests were treated to a fun-filled day with a mime artist, a magic show, character parade, games and THE most amazing birthday cake!
Look at that detail!
The kids had an absolute blast and as usual, it was so hard getting them to leave the park! Alyssa especially loved the games which the Bugz staff had to put together for the day. She took part in a Watermelon contest and even got to show off her hula-hooping skills which she got from her Mama…. NOT 🙂
I absolutely love the story behind Bugz Playpark, which was founded by Lise Liebenberg, with her vast knowledge and passion for teaching and child development.
After visiting over 30 playparks around the world herself, Lise had a clear vision of what she aimed to build here in South Africa.
The playpark offers the most diverse play experiences for kids between the ages of 2 to 10. The enormous shaded outdoor playpark as well as the large indoor area filled with obstacles, slides, educational boards and challenges are intended to keep attention spans going while allowing creativity to overflow. The outdoor playground is everything a child can imagine – swings, jungle gyms, maps, peddle carts and waterslides; each activity stimulates little minds, builds motor skills and burns energy the fun way!
Lise’s five year goal is to improve the park’s offering by developing a more extensive toddler section. Her vision is to implement a series of unstructured play pods where kids are able to create dens and structures from loose parts, to further enhance their learning experience.
An adventure farm park is also on the cards just outside of Stellenbosch. The emphasis for this new venture will be natural play, inclusive play and family play… Watch this space!
Thank you Bugz for inviting us to share this special milestone with you! My family and I have so many special memories at Bugz and we will certainly be back (again and again) to make more!
