JUDY PANNELL RESERVE NATURE PLAYGROUND
Client: City of Canning
Location: 74 Braibrise Road, Wilson
Dates: April, 2021
NBP was approached by the City of Canning to design and construct a Nature Based Playground in Wilson as part of their Playground Renewal Project, reflecting community focus on more natural, inclusive and accessible play.
Located within the treed area of the park, the design includes different nature play elements integrated together to create a free flowing playspace of sitting, exploring, climbing and balancing challenges, as well as a basket swing and artistic carving.
The reserve is named after Judy Pannell, a prominent member of the City of Canning, former Councillor and School Principal, with the carving representing one of her favourite eucalypts, the red cap gum.
The natural look and feel of the nature play elements integrate well with the existing park’s natural setting, and adjacent to Canning River Regional Park.
Nature Play Elements:
Active Play: Balance Rope Walk, Timber Basket Swing, Balance Logs and Rocks
Climbing: Balance Log scramble, Rock Mound
Landscaping: Ground Logs and Rocks, Soft Fall Mulch, Verticals, Steppers
Artworks: Vertical Carving
Commissioned: Design and Construct
“It was a pleasure working with NBP staff and seeing Judy Pannell Park come to life, and thank you for taking the time to add the special carving.”
