Project Description

VARIETY INCLUSIVE PLAYGROUND – IN PROGRESS

Lieutenant Cantello Reserve, Hammondville | Playground

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Working with Variety NSW and promoting the ‘Everyone Can Play’ principles, OUTHOUSE design developed an inclusive playground design inspired by the local Georges River. Inviting all children and families to take a journey through the key habitat islands where they can explore and discover where plants and animals live!

Our key habitat activity zone ‘Eucalyptus forest’ highlights the inspiration of the key threatened species such as the koala. So in this zone you can enjoy climbing the tall Eucalyptus tree towers, spinning on the gumnuts, balancing on the gum leaf steppers and sliding down the giant slide from the upper tower canopies! With educational elements for Children to learn as they adventure through the forest.

With a variety of individual and group fun activities, this playground seeks an adventure filled with lots of play, natural challenges and hidden discoveries.

“We have had the pleasure of working with Katrine and the OUTHOUSE team on our Variety Livvi’s Place Lt Cantello Reserve project over the last year.

Katrine and her team are always focused on the finer details right from the word go. They are highly professional, very personable and incredibly talented and visionary when it comes to design. They communicate openly and honestly whilst driving the project to timelines and within budgets.

We have been especially impressed with Katrine’s ability to delve into the fundamental core principles of inclusion and what that means for children and their families in the setting of a playspace. She designs for ALL to play. We loved her ideas, combined with those of the local community through consultation, to incorporate the natural habitat into the space we are enhancing.

When you work with OUTHOUSE it’s a true partnership in every sense of the word and I would have no hesitation recommending them.”
