Lawlor Davis Park Attadale (Naturescape playground).

Lawlor Davis Park Attadale (Naturescape playground).

We commenced site work for the naturescape playground in February (you can see how the project unfolded here).

Initially this area was an old, deserted park but we transformed it into an inviting naturescape area for everyone to enjoy. It’s rewarding to be part of a community project that now the whole neighbourhood has somewhere new to explore that’s close to home.

Firstly, it was demolition phase. This involved removing all the existing structures that could not be recycled for the naturescape whilst keeping the groovy fish seat that was in good condition. The lifeless grass and shrubbery was dug out and the thriving trees have been incorporated into the naturescape design.

A place to leave your footprints.

A meandering compacted limestone footpath with midland brick edges was incorporated to create a beautiful contrast to the planted areas whilst providing a clear walkway around throughout the naturescape.

Innovative Seat Design.

Quarried Granite boulders were sourced locally and used as feature rocks to surround the play areas and create additional seating. The timber logs were sourced from local tree removal to establish contrast and seating variation.

2

Softfall Landing.

The play equipment was installed with a softfall mulch for all playareas, which was locally sourced and designed to make a safer environment for children.

3

Intertwined Walkway.

We installed an exposed aggregate footpath to connect both streets for pedestrians, bikes and prams to access easily.

Putting the NATURE in naturescape.

The soft landscaped areas were planted using a palette of native plants. Overall, 970 shrubs and trees were planted inside the naturescape.

We hope you enjoy the naturescape and create some great memories.
