AA Bailey Adventure Playground
The AA Bailey Reserve nature play project is a playspace to reengage children with natural environment and getting them active.
The project is an upgrade of the existing playground to create an inclusive nature play space utilising existing play elements. The city of Mitcham has recently upgraded the adjacent Goodale Reserve playground aimed for younger children.
The focus was to create a space for a range of ages, whilst replacing some of the existing play elements that have a limited remaining lifetime. Parcour is encouraged through new elements to provide different play options made of timber, rope and rocks to climb, jump and balance on. Relaxing areas are also included such as the ‘bird nest’ composed of a sand pit and musical instruments.
