Dinosaurs and fairies can now be seen by children and their families thanks to the Magical Park App.

Cities around Perth have collaborated with Magical Park creator Geo A.R Games, to bring family fun as part of Parks Week 2017 which runs from four to 18 March . The app can only be used in participating parks and well within the safe boundaries.

The City of Subiaco is one of several regions who have agreed to join in the event.

“I tried out one of the games yesterday-very cute and fun,” said Lisa Dyson, Senior Communications Officer.

“The city is a leader in parks development and children’s play, and the App is a great way for kids and families to explore the city’s beautiful parks. The city is proud to support this magical initiative by Parks and Leisure Australia WA for Parks Week 2017.”

The app was created by Melanie Langlotz and the idea behind the app came up when she was doing her post graduate in entrepreneurship, and fully developed it when she met her co-founder Amie Walken in 2015.

Their app’s success is thanks to one unusual aspect.

“Magical Park is free to play, there are no advertising and no in app purchasing,” said Melanie, ‘it goes back to our ambition in making a company that is 100% ethical and sustainable.’

Geo A.R Games is currently looking into further developing one of their games.

“The game is called ‘Shark in the park’ and you’ll be able to play it anywhere in the world.” Said Melanie. The new game will be compatible with most devices and will be available to purchase in the app store.
