Having separate structures for younger and older children encourages the progression of physical and active development. Younger children can aspire to hang from the ropes on the senior playground, and the junior playground facilitates their development to make that transition.
Combining the Orbit and Traditional structures and being able to swing on the enormous Whirlwind swing provides boundless opportunities for imaginative and challenging play to ensure each kid wants to return to Melton Recreation Reserve where their passion for play belongs.
When designing Junior Playgrounds, SafePlay is catering for the developing needs of younger children. SafePlay Playgrounds offer a diverse range of active and passive play choices as well as excellent opportunities for parents to supervise or join in.
When designing Junior Playgrounds, we believe that providing a balanced array of activities is paramount. Their diverse range of physical abilities demands that equipment be capable of allowing children to extend their developing skills and social interaction.
Orbit & Traditional Structures
By combining the non-structured play opportunities of Orbit with our traditional modular play equipment, SafePlay creates a play environment where children of all ages can find suitable play experiences.
The Whirlwind (4.5m high) is constructed from galvanised steel (powder coated to preferred colour) and has one basket seat that can hold up to four children.
The basket seat is supported from a heavy duty universal bearing offering both spinning and swinging motion. It makes a terrific play item that will serve the community for many years.
Manufactured by Australia’s largest Playground Company, FORPARK AUSTRALIA, our equipment is designed to comply with Australian Standards and is built to last using powder coated uprights, platforms, and components. The fittings are manufactured from various materials including powder coated galvanised steel, roto-moulded plastics, and rope items which are wrapped in a fire-resistant nylon braid.
Made in Australia.
