Here's Jordin in the delivery van bringing fresh goods to the shop.

Today they’ve joined Ivana and Hanna to enjoy all the different sports on offer at the Sports Centre. Score a goal in football. Shoot basketball hoops. Enjoy a game of tennis.

Mobile Tiny House
This Mobile Tiny House is big-time fun! Best of all, it can travel – perfect for adventures. Join Leo, Liann and Paisley as they go on a camping trip with their pets. Drive to the perfect spot.

The transparent dome has a rotating function that allows the butterflies to fly around – just like in a real botanical garden. Place your model on display to enjoy the delightful scene all year round.
Sea Rescue Boat
Nova and Aliya are helping to clean up the shores of Heartlake City. They are learning lots about ocean creatures as they sail on the catamaran. Roll the boat over the rubbish to scoop it up into the boat’s net, ready for recycling. Lower the submarine so Nova can collect rubbish from the ocean floor. Then head to the laboratory with Aliya to study water samples. Helping sea life is so rewarding!
Downtown Flower and Design Stores

Sea Rescue Plane
Can you help Zac with a rescue mission? He has found a beluga whale that is trapped among the rocks and pieces of old wood on the shoreline of Heartlake City beach. Luckily, his mentor, Dia, is overhead piloting the Sea Rescue Plane. Zac gives her a call and they work together to rescue the whale. Once the whale is safely back in the sea, Zac can enjoy a flight in the plane. What an awesome view!
It's an exciting day at the skate park. Liann is practicing her triple kickflips on her skateboard. Zac is hitting some backspins on his in-line skates and Luna is practicing a handplant on the ramps. Join the friends for a fun session or head to the park building where you can fix skateboards and skates at the workshop. Then head up in the lift and relax with a drink in the chill-out zone.
Sea Rescue Centre
Autumn loves all kinds of animals. And she knows that her friend Leo is always ready for adventure, so she’s invited him to the Sea Rescue Centre. Today the friends are caring for injured otters. Pull up to the dock in the water scooter. Head inside to clean, X-ray and feed the otters. Then help them slide into the rehabilitation area. When they’re well again, the otters can swim back into the ocean.
Enjoy a tasty treat at the pancake shop with Luna and Paisley. Luna is choosing her favourite topping from the menu. Paisley prepares the pancakes using the spinning mixer and toy cooker. Then the friends relax together and enjoy the pancakes at the table. Look out for Melody the bunny – she loves to pop by when pancakes are cooking!
Heartlake City Community Centre
There’s always something fun to do at the newly opened community centre. Come along and meet your friends as they get creative at the centre.
