Project

Florian Estate

The playground at Florian Estate is a masterpiece of fine architecture and detailed construction. The team at adventure+ worked closely with the landscape architect Thomson Hay & Associates to design this amazing, unique playground.

The most unique thing about this playground is its aesthetics. It has a large round timber slatted roof and was constructed on a mound to give it height. This is smart way to add interest to the space and increase the visibility of the tower which can be clearly seen in the surrounding new housing estate.

Appearance is important, however getting the design is equally important to ensure children are engaged and challenged. Balancing more challenging items like a climbing rope access suited to senior children, with small easy-access stairs for juniors was vital to the success of the design.

There is no limit to the fun for children at this estate. The play space also includes a natural timber log modular rope climbing structure, Gyro swing, flying fox and large chute slide providing an exhilarating, challenging experience for all children of all ages.

The main tower was constructed using the spectrum+ hybrid system, which combines timber and steel. This is very effective in creating a modern, natural look for the estate but also maintaining the vibrant colours needed to make a playground attractive to children. The playground has been a huge a success, adding great value and fun into the community.
