INTERACTIVE AND ENGAGING
This playground provides the perfect place for everyone in the community to gather and enjoy.
Anthea Reserve is in a central location on Delfin Island. This playground was designed to create a focal point for the local community within an existing pathway network.
The aim of the project was to upgrade an existing playground to cater for the needs of the local community. The location of the playground next to the water gave an opportunity to design a playground with a nautical theme. It was also desirable to maintain views through the playground to the water. Clear and unobstructed views of the lake were maintained by carefully situating the play equipment within the playground.
Proludic supplied and installed Proludic playground equipment and wetpour rubber safety surfacing pads. The pads were installed under the slide, swing and “Speed Gyro” rotating unit.
Low post and rail fencing was used to deter young children from wandering towards the road or into the path of the moving cableway.
Proludic’s Keo the Shipwreck is the feature of the playground with a strong connection to the desired nautical theme. Keo’s design encourages imaginative and fun group play activities, with children and parents often playing together.
The Cableway provides a meeting point and is a very popular activity, with the large timber beam creating a visual link with the Keo. Dippy the Dolphin creates a link with the nautical theme and provides another group play activity.
The Speed Gyro and Swingset give active play opportunities and also encourage interaction between children and parents. The post and rail fencing is used throughout the playground as both a barrier and as a way of providing informal seating.
The final result is an interactive, engaging space for people of all ages to enjoy.
