Optus Stadium Park
In this project, success is demonstrated by the landscape architects’ vision to deliver the extraordinary extensive play spaces within the parkland setting of the new Optus Stadium located on Burswood peninsula.
Never before has such an impressive, all-encompassing play space been on offer in Perth, incorporating a collection of play areas to appeal to all ages, while broadening their appreciation of nature, culture and diversity.
Extensive engagement with the local indigenous community and others has led to the inclusion of six zones, representing the local Indigenous Noongar seasons. Each zone incorporates different plants, local materials, nature-play themes, art and educational signage in interesting and diverse ways.
The jury were impressed by the significant contribution this play space provides for the children and youth of Perth. The result is an entirely new destination play space that embraces local knowledge and understanding of place.
