Jeavons have designed another new playground for the City of Kingston
, with the residents reaping the rewards of the hardworking and dedicated council staff. The playground is located at Roy Dore Reserve, Carrum and further information can be found on City of Kingston’s website.
The playground has a pirate boat under shade sails with plenty of looting and mayhem to keep young pirates preoccupied.
The Bloom Exhibition
is on at the Gallery of Australian Design
in Canberra. The exhibition showcases landscape projects from around Australia that demonstrate how the built environment can affect our well being.
Jeavons have two projects in the exhibition – Clifton Hill Railway Project and the Isabel Henderson Kindergarten .

Do you feel like a journey through the storybook world of Bollygum
, setting sail on a giant ship
, climbing the back of a ‘ Portosaurus’
, or a visit to a Smurf village
? These are just some of the adventures that children may experience at our playspaces. Ian White from Melbourne Playgrounds
has posted a collection of his favourite Jeavons playgrounds on Weekend Notes
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,
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.
