Sun smart playgrounds – doesn’t mean low fun!

Leveraging the 100% shade tolerance of the Barefoot Classic turf, we designed a play area that was shade tolerant, but still had lots of fun, colour and adventure.

Using feature elements of crazy paving and a running creek bed under the sand pit deck, we were able to provide the children with a special bit of magic.

Integrated into the design was a naturally bordered sand pit, balance steps, timber furniture and raised planter boxes. The use of natural timber and stone in this play area meant that not only was there plenty of sensory experiences for the children, but it’s also very robust and easy to keep clean.
