The Ballarat Aquatic & Lifestyle Centre Creche wanted to expand their existing outdoor play area space and as such a concept design plan was initially required to plan out the new space. Consultation with centre staff and council was undertaken and a concept plan developed in late 2017. The design included a new hang-out space, above ground sand play area, bike path and softfall area, various decks including a bamboo fenced play deck, grassed area, a tee-pee and garden areas. The new expanded area crossed over into underground infrastructure which had to be designed around and a large existing Ash tree that is to be retained. The project opened in July 2018.
Completed: July 2018
