We are thrilled to be delivering the new Thomas Street Reserve Playground for Bayside City Council.
Developed in the mid-1980s, the much-loved community space in Hampton is being upgraded to align with current standards and modern amenity. The concept created by playground specialists Ric McConaghy incorporates feedback from extensive community consultation and retains the site’s unique heritage characteristics.
The park will be the first fully inclusive playspace in Bayside. Key elements include a new castle and extensive accessible play equipment, a senior’s exercise area, picnic shelters, a Changing Places and public toilet facility
The centrepiece of the playground is a timber castle, which carries forward the theme of the current fort/castle. Turrets from the existing fort will be re-purposed in the new design, and wood and natural materials will feature throughout.
