Client: Touched By Olivia / Whiteman Park
lyPa designed, constructed and installed a range of bespoke play equipment for Pia’s Place All Abilities Playground at Whiteman Park, a premier tourism destination in Western Australia. The centerpiece of the playground is a 13 meter high lighthouse climbing tower with a tube slide. Multiple screens displaying the view from the top of the lighthouse can be found in an accessible tunnel underneath creating an inclusive experience for all. A series of climbing nets with custom concrete climbing wall grips were created to connect lower topography areas to the base of the lighthouse.
lyPa installed a range of accessible play equipment and furniture including a harness seat on the flying fox, a basket swing, a ground level nest cubby and musical instruments. Wheel-chair accessible picnic tables were installed along with transfer benches into the sandpits and a sand play table to allow children or adults with mobility challenges to play with other children in the sand.
A bespoke Nest climbing structure was created utilising locally acquired recycled fence posts. Customised ship and wagon climbing structures were also created to reflect the heritage of the surrounding region. Steel arbor tunnels were fabricated for vegetation to colonise, creating green pathway tunnels to explore. Large precast polished concrete slides were installed onto one of the play spaces’ sloping embankments and an additional toddler height slide was installed within a sandpit area.
Journey pathways were created throughout the playground using a series of lyPa products including monkey bars, roll over bars, balance logs and sleepers, a vine run and timber steppers. Cubby Creator structures were installed to allow children to make their own cubbies, utilising timber poles, loose branches an hessian provided by Whiteman Park.
