Wulaba Park NSW, Australia (2016)

Wulaba Park is one of more than 15 new parks and open spaces in the fast-growing Green Square area.

Street Furniture Australia furnished it with custom seat backrests and table settings.

The park covers more than 4000 sqm of outdoor space and features a large playground, open lawn space and landscaped picnic and barbecue area.

“Most of Green Square’s new residents will live in apartments without their own yards, so we’re building new parks with spaces for kids, adults and everyone in between to exercise, relax and play,” says Sydney Mayor Clover Moore.

“With its challenging adventure playground, leafy picnic areas and purpose-built games facilities, Wulaba Park is a fantastic addition to the area where everyone can enjoy some downtime or playtime.”

Street Furniture Australia supplied custom seat backrests, Classic Plaza Settings, Seats and Benches throughout the park.

The City of Sydney led the project, in partnership with developer Meriton. The concept design was produced by Gallagher Ridenour Landscape Architecture and further developed by award-winning landscape architects Sturt Noble Associates.

Sydney artist Nuha Saad worked closely with Sturt Noble to design the playground’s colourful equipment and soft-surface floors.

“The inclusion of colour and pattern throughout the park design creates intriguing zones engaging the community in the park’s playful and colourful nature,” says Saad.

“Patterned painted paths, and concrete benches incorporating coloured resin discs add points of interest, and give the park a kinetic quality.”

Sturt Noble specified custom seat backs with eco-certified hardwood battens from Street Furniture Australia to be fixed onto Saad’s decorated concrete plinths.

Wulaba is an Aboriginal word of the Gadigal people meaning rock wallaby. Rock wallabies were once a regular sight around Waterloo, which was home to the largest swamp in the district until it was replaced with development in the early 20th century.
