GLADYS NEWTON RESERVE NATURE PLAYGROUND
Location: 41 Hawkevale Road, High Wycombe
The City of Kalamunda engaged Nature Based Play and Chris Ferreira from The Forever Project to rejuvenate a section of the Gladys Newton Nature Reserve in High Wycombe.
The reserve is a beautiful space with an area populated with large mature trees, creating a natural shady haven.
NBP designed and constructed a Nature Play area beneath the trees, with a circular pathway being added to surround the space. Elements of nature play included a classic swing and stump slide for younger children and a rope walk to engage older children in balancing and climbing. Ground rocks, new plantings, shade structure and BBQ facilities have been added to create an enticing place for nearby residents and local families to visit.
