Jeavons Landscape Architects were invited to assist with further development of the outdoor play spaces on this is new early childhood centre in the Kimberley, W.A. The centre provides care and education services to children and families from the Fitzroy River Valley. The centre has a wonderful new building which was only opened officially in June 2013. The aim is to provide rich and culturally appropriate outdoor play and to address critical issues such as shade in a climate where the temperatures are regularly above 40 degrees in summer.
The new playground and park refurbishment at Friendship Square, Cheltenham has transformed this space into a lively and widely-used pocket park. Since its recent construction, the park has seen a significant rise in popularity with locals enjoying the space on a daily basis. As part of the Kingston City Council Playground Strategy prepared by Jeavons in 2009, the tiny park was recognised as an important space due to its location.
We are pleased to welcome back Felicity Brown, our senior landscape architect who has returned from maternity leave. Felicity is operating from near Horsham and allows us to service our clients in the Wimmera, the western district and other rural areas in Victoria and South Australia.
