We were asked to design two different play areas, the first area for the younger users, and the second for the older age group with more challenging options. A combination swing for all ages and abilities separates the two play areas.
The 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, the Arched Climbing Wall adds a challenging component to the play space for more confident climbers, whilst the tunnel adds a cubby feel that all children love.
The second play area was designed with more challenging options for the older age group. It is designed to strengthen upper body muscles and practice balancing and climbing skills, The spiral slide gives the thrill of forced movement that all children love.
The combination swing with toddler, sling and bird’s nest swings allows paired combination of siblings, friends or parents, to enjoy the timeless swinging sensation. The woven net base of the bird's nest offers enjoyment for multiple playground users of various ages and abilities.
We chose a colour palette to represent the bright colours of some of the ice cream flavours that Simmo's offer, Canola Cream powder coat was used on the Uprights to resemble the colour of the icecream cones.
