St Cyprians School-in-the-Woods Playground

St Cyprians School contacted us to design a Forest Playground for their Pre-primary section. They wanted a playground that would be all natural and totally different from the other play areas in the school. It is a playground aimed at children between 5 and 8 with a focus on creating an organic and sensory space for the children to interact with nature.

Focus was placed on using natural materials, many of which were found on site:

Features such as a Labyrinth, water feature, and nest, among others, were used as focal points in the design:

The planting was predominantly indigenous with a focus on creating a variation of colours, textures and smells.

The project was completed in 2015.
