Location: Forest Lake Sports Field, 310 Forest Lake Boulevard, Brisbane
Client: Brisbane City Council
The playground at Forest Lake Sports Field has been installed following a request from local community groups for a ‘trail like’ playground. The main community groups that were consulted were ‘Little Athletics’ who utilise the sports field and sand pit for athletic events and the junior football club.
The brief was to provide a playground that provided trail and climbing elements that could be used by both older children and younger children. A key element was ensuring that the equipment was quite transparent and complemented the existing environment, whilst allowing for passive surveillance. The Ropes Circuit J5402M was included for younger children aged 2 to 8, while the IXO Multi-Play J2568M with a custom slide was included for older children aged 6 to 13. Children are able to use the play equipment as an obstacle course, starting at one end and finishing at the other. The Climbing Hut J254 is a welcome addition to the playground to provide more climbing opportunities for young children but is also a wonderful place to take a break and chat with friends.
