The first word that comes to mind when you think of Chatswood Chase is either luxe or fashion - definitely not the phrase kid-friendly. Sydney, never even judge a book by its cover. If one was to decide between this shopping centre and nearby Westfield's in terms of the most kid-friendly options; Chatswood Chase wins hands down.
The first three floors (lower ground, ground and level 1) comprise of essential services, food and clothing for adults. Right up the top at level 2, parents are conveniently led to a top range of kids clothing stores from Cotton on Kids to Kidstuff to name.
The coolest part is the open kids playground, known as the Play Pod. The kids of Sydney get to play on some cool screens in a wide, colourful space. Parents, there is ample space to supervise your little ones. If you download the Beat the Q app, Cicco Bar will even deliver your coffee right to you and/or treat to you while you're supervising your child/children at the Play Pod.
