The City went to a community consultation to vote for the type of play elements that they would love to see in the park. The outcome was 1) A ninja style obstacle course with a swing set. 2) Traditional outdoor play components including a swing set and a slide, integrated with natural elements, i.e Rocks, timber balance beams, and natural steppers.
We designed a mixed age playground with a circuit layout to encourage Ninja Warrior style play. Six platforms allow for multiple entry and exit points and launching areas for a variety of physical challenges that cater for mixed abilities and ages.
A smaller, separate play unit with an 800mm slide, safety stairs and interactive panels provides physical, imaginative and social play opportunities for a younger age demographic.
Natural steppers and a 3 piece log balance extend the circuit to include balancing skills and inner core stability, The double swing allows a paired combination of siblings, friends or parents, to enjoy the timeless swinging sensation in a separate pit.
We chose a natural colour palette to blend with the beautiful bush surrounds.
