Outerspace were responsible for the design of a neighbourhood scale playground at the housing development ‘Coast’. The Client wanted the park to be the focal point of the development.
The existing site was essentially a large swale with steep banks creating a considerable challenge: significant earthworks and innovative design solutions were developed to ensure that the new reserve provided DDA compliance.
An ‘ocean’ theme was developed, with play equipment including a ship’s bird’s nest structure, seahorse rocker and multi-user dolphin rocker. Other challenging elements include a 4m high embankment slide, large single-point swing and 20m cable ride. A variety of natural play elements were integrated to create an exciting play space.
