Moncrieff Recreation Park – KOMPAN Playgrounds


There’s a lot of talk about the obesity
issues in Australia with children and actually to get them out and play. Here we’ve actually got a number of play
elements as well so it’s not just for a certain age group. The way the play area has been designed and structured allows kids to come out here and not be bored within 15-20 minutes. They’ll be bored after 4-5 hours. It’s fantastic. It’s really fun to play on. One of the things I quite like about it is
that it’s got heaps of towers that you can do many things on like climbing, but there’s also slides attached to the top So it’s like an achievement when you get to the top. It’s really cool. In a new suburb planned for 10,000 residents, the developers decided to build an area with activities like playground, fitness, basketball, multisport and badminton. They absolutely love it. It’s phenomenal to see how many people actually come and use the park, particularly on the weekends In Moncrieff just outside Canberra, Australia, the stunning sunset with vibrant colors became a theme for the playground colors and the landscape architect enjoyed working with KOMPAN. It was fantastic. We knew early on that we wanted to do some big, bold gestures here in this park. So we did a number of sketches and things of the bridges and those kinds of things and then pieces of the equipment evolved and developed through our relationship with KOMPAN. The new playground inspires children to leave their screens and get out to play. Because videogames are kinda boring when you can just go outside, go on a playground, make friends and have fun.
