Rigorous attentions to detail has resulted in a place that is devoid of clutter and reflects the calmness of its Moreton Bay outlook.
Be it hidden fairy gardens, giant snakes or physical challenges the play space successfully embeds itself into the Botanic Gardens providing opportunity to interact with water, nature and learn through creative play.
Importantly, Convic was committed throughout the process to ensuring that local young people youth were deeply involved with this project. It is an outstanding example of the richness that effective, targeted consultation can bring to a project.
