Winner of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture AILA QLD’s 2019 Playspace Award, “Bunya Adventure Playground” is the new jewel in Fortress Group’s Riverparks development, and is sure to keep the kids in this community entertained for hours!
Playscape Creations worked hand in hand with the team from SLR Consulting to create this truly adventurous playground, designed to retain the existing vegetation and engage with its natural surroundings.
The Bunya trees at the entrance to the playspace are a stunning asset to the park environment, framing the fun within. The top level of the playspace has a fantastic timber climbing unit with challenging features leading to a rewarding sliding experience. Standing out from the roadside, it along with the arch framed swing, shelter and BBQ’s is just a teaser to the real thrills within the hidden amphitheatre.
Twin 6.5m long super racing slides allow mates (and adults) to race down the embankment with a custom rope connector aiding the climb back up. Sandstone steps, boulders and deco pathways set into the landscape are a more conservative alternative. But the 10.5m golden Mobius Climber – and Australian first – provides the most varied climbing experience with hand grips helping all the scambling monkeys along this anodised aluminium climber.
Some wonderful video footage from the local news – awesome to see the community loving it so much!
Great collaboration leads to great outcomes – so our thanks to SLR and Fortress Group for a fantastic partnership throughout this project.
