Awesome action in Sydney's urban centre.

Opened in 2014, this clever playground located in the heart of busy Kings Cross required a high quality, robust and risk-friendly playground for children and parents to comfortably enjoy and engage with. The design brief was approached from the perspective of restoring a precious family heirloom to its former glory, paying respect to the original design works from the 1970s. In keeping with its history, the landscape architect has created a fun, safe and playful area suitable for a range of ages and abilities.

The architect was keen to use colours that blend with the broader park, introducing a pop of a vibrant orange to reflect its retro past. The use of swings, climbing structure, nature play, and a shiny wide slide make this an inviting playground in a dense city landscape.
