Parramatta Park Inclusive Playground

Parramatta Park Inclusive Playground

MGP were proud to be part of the design team that worked on the new all-inclusive kids playground, at Ollie Webb Reserve in Parramatta.

The $1.8 million regional-size playground, which received $300,000 of funding from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund, provides a place for children of all ages and all abilities to enjoy year round. 

The playground features a large variety of activities and equipment; sand and water play areas, sensory equipment, explorer dome (a maze of nets, ropes, ladders and tunnels), along with the inclusion of wide embankment slides, accessible carousel and sand pit, water play elements and a supportive swing. 

The landscape architecture team at Phillips Marler designed this unique space in Paperbark Park, MGP completed the hydraulic services for the playground.

The site proposed a number of challenges; its location in the centre of a park meant there were no existing water or drainage facilities. MGP provided a design solution to facilitate the supply and removal of water to meet Council standards.
