The City of Casey's Playground Strategy identifies sites within the municipality for the installation of new playgrounds. New district and local level playgrounds are funded by the Capital Works Program and are delivered within the financial year. The works will include a playground renewal program which is compliant with Australian Standards.
The local level, Banjo Paterson Reserve playground, Lynbrook, will be refurbished during the 2021/2022 Financial Year.
The concept for this central boardwalk playground which forms an important part of the overall masterplan for the Banjo Paterson Reserve playground project embraces the beautifully established woodland that currently surrounds the parklands.
The elevated timber boardwalk takes people of all abilities on a journey through the trees, starting at the sand play zone and ending high in the tree canopy, with views across the parklands to Banjo Paterson Lake.
The boardwalk is dotted with sensory play elements along the journey, with multiple opportunities for ways up and onto the structure via ladders, ropes and steps.
The underside of the boardwalk provides accessible shop play and cubby, with path connections allowing movement in and around the playground that harness all the opportunities for fun to be had.
The landscape surrounding the boardwalk is just as enticing, with a journey around the structure that is dotted with balancing challenges, a low-level viewing deck for listening to nearby frogs and a sand play zone that is beautifully framed by large rocks for seating and play.
Access around the site has also been enhanced with additional paths connecting to the local neighbourhood and the lake loop walk.
The playground is framed by native plantings that enhance the natural environment, attract local bird life and promote pollinators which will help enrich the environment for years to come.
