We had the pleasure of working very closely with Whites beach community as well as the team at Surf Coast Shire in creating this very unique playground. The design team from Jeavons Landscape architects who collaborated closely with artists, community groups, Council and the Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation to create an accessible foreshore play space for children of all ages.
The community embraced the project right from the start and were instrumental in bringing together the cultural heritage of the site, indigenous themes and the beauty of the existing landscape.
The playground has many layers of information expressed through beautiful art works created and designed by local artists and the community. In particular we would like to recognise YUM Design (Kirsty Manger and Lee Goller) who created all of the ceramic installations, Kyla Vinton for the mosaic installations and Glenn Romanis for the timber turtle and egg sculptures.
Take a trip to Torquay and try out the unique play elements as and explore the educational art trail.
