Waterfront Park, Newstead – QLD


Council’s brief was to create an innovative outdoor exercise space to engage the local community. The design needed to accommodate an existing tight envelope while offering a variety of items to suit users of different ages and fitness levels. Importantly, the equipment needed to be robust and constructed from appropriate materials to withstand the local coastal conditions.

Pasterfields Sports Complex – NSW


Pasterfields Sports Complex is a spectacular project that started as part of Lake Macquarie City Council’s masterplan, years before it was actually installed. Now the amazing Sports Complex is finished, complete with community spaces and facilities including an a_space playground and outdoor gym.

The site for Pasterfields is in the heart of Cameron Park, NSW. This area was strategically chosen to enhance the facilities of a region that is full of young families. Lake Macquarie City Council has a strong focus on providing facilities that promote active, healthy lifestyles and making the most of the great outdoors.

This development includes brand new community spaces and facilities including a sports field, netball courts, and a skate park. It also includes 2 playgrounds and an a_space outdoor gym.

The snaking level of the path was a challenge for the steep site. This meant that the land lent itself to an upper and lower level playground. Without using too much expensive wet-pour rubber, the space needed to be inclusive for all abilities.
