Play - Architects
Whether it’s a simple, small play space to integrate into an apartment development or a statement playground to attract people from far and wide, we are well equipped to help create play spaces that will excite. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate and provide the specifications and file formats to help meet the needs of specifiers. We create play spaces that bring smiles to the children that use them, to their parents and carers and to the owners of playground assets.
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.
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.
For this playground the Landscape Architect had very clear ideas in mind to add a creative element and some undulation to a very flat area by building two large mounds.
They wanted to connect the two mounds with some interesting bridges and ropes, leaving the mulch below to represent a winding river underneath.
