The finished playground now includes both standard and custom items from WillPlay’s Australian-made range of play equipment. The units combine various climbing elements to provide a changing play experience appropriate to a user’s age and ability. Featuring extensive use of Australian recycled plastics and stainless steel and aluminium structural components, these play units offer terrific play value and will stand the test of time.
The main tower structure within the new playground is a custom design from WillPlay’s Giant TreeHouse range. It features a variety of climbing elements, as well as everybody’s favourite – a giant tube slide. With elements from the new Street Climber range, Lions Park will push kids to think about the way they play, and allow every child to choose their own path at their own pace.
The Boxie Climb, being one of the best value pieces of play equipment on the Australian market, was an inspired choice for the Lions Park project. Designed and manufactured in Australia, Boxie Climb offers exceptional play value in a single piece and can be incorporated into a complete playground design or used as a stand-alone item. Willplay also incorporated CSBR wear pads and Takura Engineered softfall to ensure a safe play zone.
The complete design and construct service offered by Willplay guaranteed the final result was something special for the local residents. This upgraded play area has been a real hit with the local community and shows how a well-planned project delivers benefits to the whole area.
