Greenpark School had a unique request; an amazing old tree was growing right where their new playground site had been selected and, not wanting to lose such a beautiful tree, Greenpark called in the team at Playco for the design challenge!
Long Bay Primary School had a large space to work with and Playco wanted to maximize the space available by packing it full of play!
The original playground used a traditional rectangle shape, but we saw room for growth. Utilising the extra space, Playco created a new L shaped design to maximize area. Using a wooden structure, ropes and overhead equipment and a fun colour palette, we spend a long time envisioning what it would be like for the kids of all ages to flow through the entire structure, creating one large space for all age groups that the students could all enjoy at the same time.
