Queenswood Junior School for Girls required a complete redevelopment of the K-2 playground.  Arterras involvement in the project included consultation, design, documentation, tendering, contract preparation and construction administration. Standard playground equipment was combined with landscape elements to create a wide variety of play opportunities. Topography, access and drainage constraints had a significant impact on the design. Durable materials were selected to blend with the existing school grounds. Colour and soft-fall were used for fun and safety. Existing shade structures were re-used and relocated to suit the new design. This project was awarded winner of  Best Playground by the Landscape Contractors Association in 2005 and the Design Award for Excellence, School Setting at the Kidsafe National Playground Conference 2006.
