Kenna Park QLD, Australia (2016)

Kenna Park runs parallel to Kippa-Ring Station, one of six new stations in the $1.147 billion Moreton Bay Rail Link project north of Brisbane.

The new park, designed by Moreton Bay Regional Council, features a central playground, fitness equipment and picnic area surrounded by turf and gardens installed by HL Contractors.

An Arqua Fountain with dog bubbler, powder-coated in Violet, replaces an existing water bubbler to cater for disabled access.

Park Tables and Benches with anodised aluminium battens and powder-coated Blaze Blue frames provide picnic settings in the shade, complemented by Blaze Blue Frame Bin Enclosures.

A Concourse DDA Seat in Bistro Orange and Lemon Yellow provides a comfortable place to watch the kids, a durable 3-seater for minimal maintenance.

“On behalf of HL and the guys on site at Kippa Ring, I’d like to thank Street Furniture Australia for supplying us with a quality product in the short timeframe we needed it by,” says Tom Want, Project Manager with HL Contractors.

“Their efforts to meet our marginal completion date ensured we were able to complete the project on time and hand something back to the Moreton Bay Regional Council that I know they are incredibly happy with.”

HL Contractors say the park is designed to increase family time spent in the area and to flex a child’s imagination, while decreasing the amount of landscape maintenance required.

Mildura Water Play Park

The Mildura Water Play Park revitalises parkland along the Murray River, inviting families to relax and play in a prime riverfront setting. Mildura Rural City Council commissioned the project to revive a 10 kilometre stretch of public park as part of an $18.3 million upgrade of the river precinct. Landscape architects Tract Consultants, with contractors King Construction Group, transformed the space into a local hotspot that attracted 1000 visitors each weekend in its first summer. “Given the hot climate of Mildura a waterplay facility was identified as an activity; to use that as part of the wider masterplan would help encourage people back to the park and the river,” says Nigel Parker, associate landscape architect with Tract. The firm designed a 40 metre long artificial stream, laid out like a river delta …

Boronia Park, Epping

Inspired by European industrial style furniture, the City of Parramatta has collaborated with Street Furniture Australia to bring a custom suite to a refreshed parkland. As population density increases in Epping in Sydney’s north-west, Boronia Park required a design re-think in line with its Master Plan and new urban character, says Erin Hrouda, Open Space Officer with the Council. The popular 4.9 hectare park received a facelift and upgraded facilities through a multi-million dollar joint NSW State Government funded program. The update included a new circuit path and seating, additional playground equipment and soft-fall, picnic shelters and tables, barbecues, improved access and lighting. Hrouda worked with Street Furniture Australia to create a site-specific range of furniture for the park. “The brief called for a unique furniture range, more urban in nature than what had previously been installed in the park, …

Anzac Park, Campsie

When Street Furniture Australia’s photographer ventured to the upgraded Anzac Park in Campsie, it was so crowded with happy families he had to postpone the shoot for a less busy time of day. The popularity of this park is a testament to its design, by Moir Landscape Architects, and implementation by contractor Sterling Group Services. The City of Canterbury-Bankstown commissioned the $575,000 upgrade, co-funded with ClubGrants, as the first of several playgrounds to be developed for its growing population. “Anzac Park Playground is one of the first major upgrades in the Canterbury region and, yes, there are plenty more in the pipeline,” says Daniel Walters, landscape architect with the City of Canterbury-Bankstown. “The playground upgrade at Anzac Park is significant as it is in the centre of our busiest town and has …
