DIAMOND CREEK MEMORIAL KINDERGARTEN
Bringing our expertise in educational landscapes and playspaces, we worked with DCMK to create a play garden that blends natural elements like boulders, timber and stone, with interactive equipment like a pump well for water play, and the existing historical train play equipment that is symbolic of the Diamond Creek history.
With the slope of the site, split level retaining walls were added to allow the children to move from the sandpit to the water pump, and to the train with ease, while reducing the risk of hazardous falls. The shallow terracing also allows defined garden bed areas in what can be a tough environment to establish plants. The plant palette featuring native plants that tickle the senses and are robust enough to deal with the conditions -
Fenced timber access stairs and a large soft fall mulch play area add to the safety features of this project, while also allowing freedom for the children to explore and play.
