Located in Swan Hill in Northern Victoria, this impressive ‘all-abilities’ playground is special in that it not only caters to a variety of ages, but also by anyone with limited or severe mobility issues, making it one of the few playgrounds in Victoria that has play equipment that can be accessed by wheelchair. A huge variety of visual, auditory and tactile features help create an exciting play area that is suitable for people young and old and excites all the senses. A big use of colour, such as coloured bricks and poles will initially attract and excite you. A variety of sound features such as deck gongs, wind chimes, voice tubes and bells and spinners will get your vocal chords and ears working. Hands-on features such as large ropes, as well as vertical and horizontal abacuses will stimulate both the mind and body. A mixture of concrete paving, sleeper paving and pebbles provide a variety of textures to experience. The playground incorporates several artworks, including a timber Murray River Cod figurehead and ceramic art under the paddle steamer. River bed creatures can be viewed through port holes in the steamer’s deck. These features help promote the uniqueness of the Swan Hill area and help tie the playground to the local history and wildlife. The playground was designed with safety first and foremost, and the inclusion of shade sails and large trees ensure it can be enjoyed year round. This also includes areas of lawn that are irrigated to provide a cooling effect during the harsher months. In line with our water efficient philosophy, the lawn sprinkler system and garden bed dripper system are fed by water pumped from a local lake and all water is reused.
