Johnson Park


Engaging community playground

As part of the City of Darebin renewal program, adventure+ was contracted to create a well-designed and engaging playground at Johnson Park. The design team at adventure+ took the brief and produced an outcome that the community love!

Project Overview

Northcote, Vic

Client: City of Darebin

A unique community playground with a unique colour scheme and equipment that caters for all age groups and skill levels.

Contemporary aesthetics, engaging elements

It is critical to think about engagement when designing a community playground. That’s why in this playground a diverse range of play components of varying challenges was included. With one end of the playground suited to senior children, the other end includes lower level, less challenging activities for younger children. Boasting at least 25 different play components the play unit includes slides, a rock climbing wall, monkey bars and activity panels and more!

While the play experience was important, we didn’t overlook the aesthetics of the playground. We designed a bright colour scheme with modern roofs and guardrail panels, making the playground stand out from other playgrounds in the region.

Project Showcase - Johnson Park6

This playground design ticked a lot of boxes for the City of Darebin – it has extensive play value, is designed for all ages and has a very appealing colour sceheme. A great outcome for the community in Darebin.


Customised to suit the community

Due to the large adventure+ range of play equipment and ability to customise, almost all the community feedback and requirements were able to be included. Elements such as the rock wall, scramble net, bead ropes and spider web climber catered for the fitness requests from the community, while components like the curving slide, monkey bars, wave slide and chain ladder fulfilled the fun aspect of the design.

Quality Australian made equipment

Play equipment selected for this project was all made here in Australia. Using our spectrum+ steel style of equipment, our client, City of Darebin, could be sure that maintenance issues would be minimalised and this would be a lost cost asset for many years to come.

At adventure+ we pride ourselves on quality finishes and detail. It makes for a pleasant playing experience for children and a good reputation for the council.
