Jeavons recently completed two playgrounds in Karratha , Western Australia.
The first project, Bulgarra Public Open Space, was part of a Masterplan to improve the play facilities in the reserve. The playground added value to the existing sporting fields, tennis and netball courts. Custom designed play structures and cubbies were constructed by Earthcare, Living Iron and Forpark.
The second project is located in a new sub division and is tagged as the new outdoor space for locals. Baynton West Adventure Playground is located adjacent to a park with a running track, exercise equipment and ball courts. The accessible play space caters for all
ages and boasts a custom designed (near full sized) dump truck, artwork, sand play areas, net structure, multi-directional swing and a 30m long double flying fox. Planting will add character and shade to the play space over time, whilst shade and communal areas are plentiful. The playground was officially opened by Regional Development and Lands Minister Brendon Grylls on October 7 2012. The playground has been officially called Mara Guthurra Adventure Playground.
Jeavons designed and documented both play space designs and was well supported by Emerge &
Associates during the construction period on the Baynton West Project.
