Proludic was engaged by Ipswich City Council to provide a playground to Eagle Street Park that encompassed play opportunities for a range of abilities and ages with a focus on the 2-12 year age group. Proludic adopted a natural-play themed design in connection to the natural areas surrounding the new Eagle Street Park. The playground enables children to be explorers and foster interest in the natural environment while developing more skills and confidence through the numerous play elements and obstacles.
The Kanopé Multi-Play (J5606 special) from our award-winning nature-inspired Kanopé range is an adventure trail with curved lines, organic shapes and colours of a woodland world in motion. An alternative timber-look colour scheme was used to seamlessly integrate the Kanopé structure in the natural setting whilst using sustainably sourced and robust materials made to suit Australian conditions.
Additional play equipment includes a Mini-Trails Circuit (J5400-M) comprising a succession of various obstacles to overcome that helps children aged 2 to 8 develop their motor skills and concentration. A Pod Swing (J441), Trampoline (R34-ETP-500), Climbing Hut (J254) and Sidney the Snake Springer (J820-GE) decorated with ‘Etnik’ graphics from our award-winning Grafic Games range add even more fun to the playground !
The feedback provided by Council about their experience working with Proludic on this project is extremely positive. Ann Bailey, Project Manager at Ipswich City Council made the following comments:
“Comprehensive presentation of play equipment. The 3D presentations were very well received by stakeholders and made communications much easier“
“Design of equipment appears to be well thought out and sturdy in nature”
“Great working relationship with Proludic. Dan (Play and Project Consultant for QLD) communicated well and works to meet the Principal’s expectations wherever possible.”
In December 2018 Eagle Street Park playground featured on the fantastic “Australia By Design: Innovations” TV show to showcase our Good Design Award Gold winning Kanopé play range. Watch our episode below:
