Play - Open Space
Whether it’s a single spring rocker or a large bespoke play tower, our focus is to meet your needs and the needs of your community. We create playground spaces that bring smiles to the children that use them, to their parents and carers and to the owners of playground assets. We take delight in designing creative, functional, durable and serviceable play spaces.
The Council was keen for this playground to be a statement piece. The site is situated high up on an embankment located between a primary school and early learning centre. The Council was looking for a design which would cater mainly for kindergarten and early primary school age children.
Council wanted a play space that would blend in with the spectacular natural surroundings while appealing to children across a range of ages. The play space needed to inspire, challenge, and promote physical activity. Care needed to be taken in placement of equipment to protect the mature trees under which the play space would be located.
Mannering Park was one of many local level playspaces being upgraded to a district level playground. This meant that council needed to offer facilities that allowed visitors to play for an extended time frame and cater for a wide age range and ability level. Council included a few notes in their tender request that talked to the surrounding sporting facilities, and added that fitness equipment is not required but would be a nice addition.
