Bungarribee at Doonside
This project succeeds in creating a transformational parkland that artfully integrates play into the natural landscape. Connecting paths invite you to explore the natural landscape of the grassland and the creek which is repaired and given prominence. The design frames and celebrates the existing natural landscape allowing the visitor to appreciate the striking landscape of the grasslands, the big open sky and distant views whilst hinting at the pastoral and industrial past of the site.
The over-scaled, play features are sculptural landmarks that create iconic gathering spaces that are subtly connected to the industrial objects from nearby. The park provides a substantial new typology of open space for western Sydney that includes inspiring places to play and socialize whilst revealing the cultural past and restoring the natural qualities of the place.
