SA – Tidlangga Playspace and Pocket Orchard – Case Study

Tidlangga Park Playground

2017 Parks and Open Space Award of Excellence in the AILA South Australia Landscape Architecture Awards program.

2017 Finalist in the Parks and Open Space category of the AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards.

We worked with the City of Adelaide’s Design and Strategy team on the Tidlangga Plasyspace and Pocket Orchard, supplying key elements of play equipment.  The project was initially proposed as a facility upgrade. The final result is a park with a more significant impact.

Tidlangga Park Playground

Site: Tidlangga Playspace and Pocket Orchard, Bundeys Rd and Mackinnon Parade, North Adelaide, South Australia
Client: Adelaide City Council, LCS Landscapes
Age Range: from 2 years old

Date Opened: August 2016

Catering for a diverse community, the playspace elements used in the park allow for sensory, active, cognitive and passive play, fostering exploration and interaction.

A community instigated pocket orchard compliments the existing recreation facilities. The orchard includes an exploratory path through the existing native vegetation, nature play features, lawn, picnic shelters and two play equipment areas.

According to the client, Tidlangga “has transformed the lower North Adelaide Park into a lively, green, integrated community hub of activity and created a unique City experience connecting users of all ages and abilities to the environment”.

The City of Adleaide chose Proludic to work with on this project for two reasons: the ease of our working relationship  and our ability to help the project designer achieve their vision within the project budget.

“With a mixture of open space, landscaping, nature play elements, sensory play opportunities and some shady space to sit, it is a big hit with children”. Thanks to “Play & Go Adelaide” for a great review of the playground, click here to view more.
