Emerge Associates received a brief to retain bushland and existing trees while creating a feature park containing usable open space for the existing and new residents of Banksia Grove.
The design process responded to the careful collation of existing habitat and vegetation with existing and new grades, combined with an understanding of local residents needs and ongoing maintenance parameters. The design weaves the irrigation settlement lake and aeration watercourse amongst the existing landscape and areas of new open space.
Public facilities and public art have been added throughout the park at key locations for general enjoyment in response to the local communities desires and needs. A feature play element was created to anchor the northern end of the design, this Pitstop Playground has proven to be very popular requiring additional overflow parking.
