On behalf of Brisbane City Council, Willplay has recently completed construction of Ducie Street Park. The park features a colourful custom-made play system and the company’s first spinning orb.
Well known for their expertise and record of sustainable, full-service design and construction of play equipment, Willplay has recently added a new park to their ever-growing portfolio of completed works. The Ducie Street Park in Darra, Queensland is now home to several custom and new play systems from the Willplay range.
The custom-designed Giant Treehouse play system installed at Ducie Street Park is made from a range of materials, a large portion of which have been sourced from recycled products here in Australia. Materials used include:
- UV stable post-consumer recycled HDPE
- Recycled timber plastic composite
- Powder coated marine grade aluminium
- Stainless steel fasteners
- Roto moulded plastic
- Powder-coated 304 stainless steel
The Giant Treehouse features a large slide, suspension bridge and a range of climbing ropes, nets and surfaces that will engage children across a range of ages.
The play area also features Willplay’s first-ever installed Spinning Orb, children can sit inside the frame of the orb or climb along the outside as the orb is spun from within. For the park’s littlest users, Willplay has installed a Littlies Train that allows for imaginative play. The train is also sustainably constructed from recycled post-consumer materials and heavy duty stainless steel fasteners.
Willplay also oversaw the installation of over 500-square-metres of PlayKote rubber softfall from Surfacing Contractors Australia. Colourful green and grey shades of the UV resistant softfall were selected to compliment the park's design.
The custom play area from Willplay is part of the $600,000 upgrade to the Ducie Street Park which aimed to increase the accessibility for a range of park users and included the installation of long overdue public amenities.
