TIDLANGGA PLAYSPACE AND POCKET ORCHARD
Proludic worked with the City of Adelaide’s Design and Strategy team on the Tidlangga Playspace and Pocket Orchard, supplying key elements of play equipment. Although the project was initially proposed as a facility upgrade, the final result is a park with a more significant impact. 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 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”.
Proludic installed play equipment from their Origin range, which is designed to exist in perfect harmony with natural surrounds. The playground features a multi-play area, swings, see saw, balance beam, rope walk, swings and climbing structures. Each piece of equipment is made of robina, a rot-resistant timber that requires no additional chemical protection, and larch, a naturally long-lasting wood.
The City of Adelaide chose to work with Proludic on this project for two reasons: the ease of their working relationship and their ability to help the project designer achieve the client’s 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, ” according to Play & Go Adelaide.
Tidlangga was awarded Parks and Open Space Award of Excellence in the AILA South Australia Landscape Architecture Awards program 2017. It was also a finalist in the Parks and Open Space category of the AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards 2017.
