Located in Bendigo, Victoria, Strathdale Park was opened several days before Easter 2016. Set in one of Bendigo's most popular parks, City of Greater Bendigo Landscape Architect, Karoline Klein was determined to get this park looking just right...and she sure did!
Armed with an initial concept drafted by Karoline, adventure+ was able to interpret the requests to create a playground that responded to the natural setting and provided excellent play value. With mature native trees surrounding the space and a small creek nearby, it was crucial to develop a naturally inspired play space.
To meet the brief, the spectrum+ hybrid system was utilised. This range provides an opportunity for a combination of timber and steel to be used, and is an ideal solution where steel uprights are required but the natural feel of timber is desired. While the combination of two timbers, Spotted Gum and White Cypress, coupled with its irregular use throughout the playground, adds character and complements the natural charm of the local area, the splashes of colour create an atmosphere of fun.
Since its opening, the space has been immensely popular with locals and the wider community!
