Located in Castlemaine, Central Victoria, the Norwood Hill Reserve features a brand new playground that both looks impressive and provides the community with plentiful play opportunities. Our team worked closely with the Mount Alexander Shire Council to ensure community feedback was incorporated and that the design catered for a range of interests and abilities.
Client: Mount Alexander Shire Council
A thoughtfully designed play space with a host of different features, created in a neutral, earthy palette in order to blend with the trees and open space which surrounds it.
In line with the natural look and feel of the park, a subtle, natural colour scheme was selected. The use of coated timber cladding with black and muted grey steel construction produces a simple yet effective look. Utilising the available play space the designers at adventure+ ensured that a lot of play opportunity was included in the design.
This large, double cluster combination unit at the centre of the naturally landscaped play space offers numerous challenging play activities suited to multiple age groups. For the little ones, and complementing the main unit, there is a swing frame and inclusive carousel. The variety and choice of equipment to play on makes it a great playground for all ages and provides enough space and options for everyone without it becoming overcrowded.
With a particular look in mind and a site to fit within, adventure+ was able to customise the standard play unit to get it exactly right. The beauty of customising for the client was the allowance to add their own individual touch, which also meant the playground was different to other playgrounds installed within the region.
By including changing components and play activities and tweaking elements allowed the client to improve aesthetics to their desired outcome. This involved customising the colours, incorporating timber cladding and even changing the style of the roofs to match the shelters adjacent to the play area.
adventure+ enjoyed working with the Council on this project and is just as pleased with the outcome as the residents.
