CARMEL ADVENTIST COLLEGE NATURE PLAYGROUND
Client: Carmel Adventist College
Location: 18 First Avenue, Bickley WA 6076
Dates: Mar, 2020
Outcome: Nature Playground
Carmel Adventist College Primary approached Nature Based Play to do a design and construction of a new nature playground for an existing sand pit area at the school, as our organic style of Nature Play was a good fit for their school and natural location.
A design was completed in collaboration with the school, which once built transformed the existing sandpit into a nature play wonderland. Included was a central tumble-down cubby fort, water play timber troughs and carved rocks, with a maze of balancing logs, steppers and rocks. Also included was a loose parts cubby area and snakehead rope play for the kids to create their own nature play, and a small sitting nook. The final nature playground provided a diverse array of different play opportunities and experiences for the children to explore and enjoy.
