Project: Rotary Park Playground
Client: Tauranga City Council
Creative natural play is linked with the history of the land at Rotary Park Playground in Tauranga.
Designed by Beca Landscape Architects for the Tauranga City Council, Playground Creations supplied the play equipment, landscaping and completed the installation.
There is an outdoor classroom where stories of the site can be told, designed in the shape of the Opupu (catseye shellfish) with a focus on natural play.
Stainless steel embankment slides and scale ropes sheltered by the trees, the flounder net rooted in sand, logs dotted on ends and seesaws make for a perfect play space.
The mix of a variety of textures – sand, softfall, shell and plantings were used to enliven the children’s senses.
