The Queenstown Bay Playground project is both a link and a destination, occupying a high-profile location between the central township and the popular Queenstown Gardens. It provides a destination play space that can be enjoyed by children and adults from all over the district and the world.
This project was about creating an innovative family-friendly environment that has been carefully integrated to enhance the natural landscape and provide a range of natural play opportunities and experiences to all ages and abilities.
The layout of the playspace is based on an iconic tree form with autumn colours, playing on the importance of the diverse planting of tree species and history of the Gardens. The playspace has added a valuable asset to the community and provides a strong landscape and urban connection, which not only recognises, but enhances the stunning natural setting of Queenstown.
