Chifley Playground construction – colourful, joyful and inclusive

13 Nov 2019

Chifley Reserve Inclusive Playground was specifically designed with input from professionals to meet a range of physical, emotional and intellectual abilities.

Glascott Landscape & Civil constructed what is now Randwick City’s largest playground. The unique play space is highly visual and has fun play equipment to challenge people of all abilities and ages.

The playground features a variety of components including a colourful central mound area, swings and play units, flying foxes, seating, picnic facilities, shade and shelter. There is rope and net climbing, inclination slides, rock climbing areas as well as a number of sensory toys such as drums, rainmakers, voice tubes, reflection mirrors and tactile sculptures. The different areas offer varying levels of challenge to help develop skills in coordination and strength.

Glascott’s NSW Manager, Mr Scott Redshaw said, “There were a few design challenges along the way, however with a great co operative relationship with Randwick Council, these were overcome and we have achieved a fantastic result which has been well received by the community.”

Highly experienced in playgrounds and public spaces, Glascott has delivered around 20 playgrounds across NSW and the ACT including other inclusive playgrounds like Collaroy All-Abilities Playground for the former Warringah Council, Lovegrove Park in Googong NSW for PEET, and recently Livvi’s Place at Jordan Springs for Lendlease. And they are currently underway with their first playground construction project in Victoria, Rosebud Foreshore Playground for Mornington Peninsula Council due to complete late this year.
