An exciting adventure playground featuring a giant slide, climbing tower, tunnels, nets and swings is the centrepiece of this child-friendly park.

A colour-filled adventure in the centre of the city that will engage all of your senses.

A full consultation process was carried out by the City of Sydney and resulted in the provision of a wide range of facilities. The demographic of the Waterloo area is very broad but is rapidly changing, and as such, the park is seen as an opportunity to create recreational opportunities in an area traditionally lacking in facilities, for the huge increase in residents resulting from apartment building in the area.

The design for Wulaba Park creates distinctive and memorable play spaces. A custom-designed play tower referencing the classic Hills Rockets of parks gone by, and a raised fort landing, incorporate multiple play experiences and are the key visual elements within the park. This unique play structure is designed to enhance imaginative, and narrative-based play and includes custom and off the shelf elements. A giant slide, ropes and cable climbing apparatus, swings, nature play and tunnels complete this exciting play experience.

The design integrates public art by Nuha Saad into key elements in the park. Sturt Noble, as lead consultant, worked closely with Nuha Saad, PlayRope, and Fleetwood Urban to provide a cohesive and integrated design outcome.

Designed to be stimulating and visually appealing, while activating a range of senses, Sturt Noble Associates and PlayRope have created play spaces providing a variety of experiences and adventures for different age groups and abilities.
