Keeping cool and nurturing community assets in Brisbane’s south east and south west suburbs.
Remember the days when a backyard sprinkler, soapy tarpaulin and a cubby house was the embodiment of our summer livelihood? With the rise of urban regeneration, we are faced with larger homes, limited lot space and safety implications which may restrict backyard freedom. Such constraint, provides opportunities to reinvigorate public outdoor places and amenities to meet the needs and desires of communities across Australia.
Championing the evolution and success of a growing population in the south west suburbs of Brisbane is Flagstone Water Play Park. A commitment made in partnership with Logan City Council and one of Australia’s leading residential developers, Peet, to build a sustainable water play area for Flagstone, bringing together new families and nurturing the tangibility of a community incentive. With an increasing number of homes devoid of swimming pools, the Water Play Park complements Flagstone’s ecosystem and those of many other residential areas throughout Australia.
Urbis Brisbane Landscape Architects Glen Power, Director and Sasha Tieleman, Associate Director, led a multidisciplinary team of experts to create a cutting-edge water playground, reminiscent of childhood memories inspired by Kenner Tree Tots Treehouse.
