This playground is a true reflection of the design capabilities of the SafePlay team. Amid some of the best city views in Melbourne, Anderson Park is full of natural slopes and hills which make it difficult to install any structure on. But what SafePlay's custom design service came up with is something that benefits the play structure, Anderson Park, and of course, most importantly, the children. The design of this playground uses the sloping terrain to its advantage - allowing tunnels, paths, and steps to run unimpeded throughout the area. Instead of excavating tonnes of dirt to accomodate a traditional playground, Anderson Park has become much more.
A well designed playground will encourage children to play together and the activities included are designed to provide a diverse range of passive and active play opportunities for children of all ages. Using this philosophy, SafePlay presented an intricately designed play area allowing children to hone their skills, develop socially, and, most importantly, have fun whilst doing it.
Play is a pivotal part of a child's early life, and in recognising this, SafePlay and Boroondara's Anderson Park present a wonderful playground making terrific use of the space provided.
