Blue Rock Lake in Willow Grove has an exciting new inclusive play space for people of all ages and abilities. Willow Grove is a popular destination for fishing and boating and the new playground aims to attract a wider variety of visitors to the area, particularly children with disability. The project was delivered in partnership by Southern Rural Water and Baw Baw Shire Council with funding support from the Victorian Government’s Boosting Recreational Water Use Initiative.
Proludic worked closely with Southern Rural Water and Baw Baw Shire Council to design and construct “an all abilities adventure playground at Blue Rock Lake”. It features a diverse range of play equipment including inclusive and accessible play items that encourage motor, cognitive, social and sensory stimulation for all. Accessible paths and safety surfacing ensure everyone can easily access the inclusive play equipment and provide a safe environment for people to have a fantastic time together, whilst enjoying beautiful views of the lake!
We were pleased to receive the following comments from Terry Clapham, Project Manager Metering Modernisation at Southern Rural Water:
” I couldn’t be happier with how this playground turned out! Taking something from an idea to fruition is a great journey and Proludic could not have been more professional or helpful throughout the process. The team was flexible, efficient, on time and on budget! We now have a quality play area that will draw people to a small community that will add value for many years to come. It is more than a play area, it will be part of ensuring the sustainability of the whole town. Thank you Proludic team! “
