Mindarie Reserve in Lane Cove now offers an exciting new nature-inspired playground by Parkequip that is designed to provide challenging fun for children of all ages and abilities.
Completed in February 2019, Mindarie Reserve playground was manufactured by Landscape Structures and supplied and installed by Parkequip. This inclusive playground was designed to cater for a wide range of children with varying degrees of abilities, while offering challenges as they explore the many nature-inspired features.
With childhood obesity and behavioural disorders on the rise, the benefits of nature-inspired play have taken centre stage.
Research shows that children who play in natural settings are typically healthier, happier and more likely to appreciate the world around them.
Green space, sunlight and fresh air can reduce the symptoms of ADHD, improve academic performance, increase motor skills, strength and coordination, and even help build social skills. The benefits go on and on.
Parkequip’s nature-inspired collection is a natural fit when it comes to planning outdoor playspaces. It combines the adventure and wonder of nature with the durability, safety and low maintenance of high-quality equipment.
Surrounded by natural trees, plants and gardens, an optimal setting for childhood play has been created – even better than mother nature intended.
Just some of the many features in this playground include:
- Rock Climbers | The challenge of real rock with safety built in, these realistic-looking climbers are sure to engage kids of all ages with the rugged fun found only in nature
- Discovery Tree Climb | Where children explore and find creatures on their journey
- Log-theme Tunnel Slide | Looks like the real thing with a stainless-steel internal sliding surface surrounded by a GRFC cast external feature that mimics a large log tree trunk
- Ramps that lead from ground level to the highest platform ensure all kids have access to each part of this exciting playground
- The Sway fun | Offers has ample room for two wheelchairs plus two large benches for plenty of other passengers
- Explore and find | Children are encouraged to find the many bush turkeys, lizards, snakes, kangaroos and turtles that are scattered throughout the playspace
Parkequip was thrilled to be a part of this exciting project that brought a unique playground to the community.
