Art Smythe | Play and Project Consultant
Having 30 years’ experience selling playground equipment has given Art a good instinct for working out what clients need.
“It helps to know the right questions to ask,” explains Art.
Art’s territory covers 11 council areas in Sydney. He helps his local government clients and independent landscape architects explore ways to create attractive fitness and play spaces using Proludic’s award-winning designs.
“We offer high quality, high-play value, unique and durable products at competitive prices. Every design decision we make focuses on what benefits children. So, when clients choose Proludic, they know they’re making a good decision.”
One of Art’s favourite projects was the upgrade of Memorial Park Kurrajong for Hawkesbury City Council.
“An important community space, the Council wanted to replace the existing playground and make best use of the sloping site. Their priorities for the new park were ‘shade, safety and fun’. Following community consultation, Proludic’s design won hands-down.”
“Our design incorporated a few custom items that extended the selected theme. The shaded playspace included some impressive sandstone blocks and sculptures. It worked well within the landscaping, which included features that reflected the local character. These included Bilpin apples, native fauna and a historic connection to the Pansy railway line.”
