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.
Jeavons Landscape Architects had the pleasure of working with the staff at the Sts Anargiri Early Learning Centre and architects Peter G Lyall & Associates during this project which is located in Oakleigh, Victoria.
A key feature of the site is the presence of two magnificent angophora trees. Careful consideration during the design and construction stages was required, to make sure the root zones of the trees were not damaged,
Federal Reserve is a park that has a very natural feel, with its mature woodland and sensational birdlife. Jeavons Landscape Architects designed and documented the recent upgrade to the play space as part of a Council initiative to make more playgrounds accessible to children and adults with a disability. It has been a rewarding project and it is always great to be part of the team that creates inclusive playspaces for children.
