Giant new playground, featuring two play towers.
At adventure+ we take play seriously, so we ensure playgrounds like the Lucas Central Playground provide an engaging and enjoyable experience for all children and parents that visit. A well designed playground can have enormous benefits for a child’s physical and mental well being and our designers worked to maximise this.
The incorporation of a huge double tower with a variety of climbing elements is challenging and promotes a lot of physical exercise! The number of activities, especially climbing, provide a cardio and full body workout for the children.
While some youngsters may find climbing up the 7 metre high towers a thrill, many have to overcome fear and getting out of their comfort zone, which has huge developmental benefits. The towers are made up of a maze of staircases and platforms, and require children to work together and take turns to navigate through the towers, which teaches social awareness and sharing.
One of the many advantages of working with adventure+ is ability to customise playgrounds to make them unique and eye catching. For the Lucas Central Playground, we worked closely with all stakeholders to customise the configuration, colours and materials to achieve an outcome that reflected the developers vision.
The new park has been a huge success and has created a massive attraction for the community in Ballarat.
