GJ’s Landscape and Civil was engaged directly by Woollahra Municipal Council to deliver the upgrade to this playground in Paddington. After receiving a 1,300m2 parcel of land from Anglicare, the owners of the Old Scottish Hospital site, Council invited the community to be directly involved in the process of re-designing the park. A series of design workshops, meet and greets and surveys were held with the final design an absolute stunner.
Key improvements included:
- The installation of brighter and challenging play environment on the embankment with play equipment including a tubular slide, a large climbing net, balance beams and timber stepping posts
- New footpaths, picnic settings, seating and a drinking fountain
- New garden beds established with extensive plantings of shrubs and perennials
