It was fantastic to be involved in this project. Our job was to replace the timber fort. We needed to respect the children’s ideas; keep the essence of the previous much loved fort; keep the structure complex and multi-purpose but make it structurally sound and buildable under today’s requirements for play spaces.
Children who use the playground drew pictures of the ideas they had for the new fort. We then worked with staff from the St Kilda Adventure Playground and the City of Port Phillip to work out how we could build all these great ideas.
Jeavons Landscape Architects did the design documentation and it was built by Simpson Constructions
