Nestled between new homes in the first Pioneer and Conquest precincts, the park is the first in a series of neighbourhood parks. It builds on Flagstone’s theme of “adventure, discovery and opportunity”, encouraging children and adults to imagine, explore and relax.
Mini captains can set sail across a sea of imagination on Australia’s first “Intrepid” ship. The ship is the biggest in Australia and the first model of its kind from KOMPAN in Australia.
At over 18 metres in length, the ship has play activities on the upper and lower deck that encourage hours of social play, active play, cognitive play, role play and dramatic play. Little deck mates can make their way onboard via stairs or climbing nets where they can gaze out through the binoculars and steer the ship to dry land. Keeping pirates at bay is easy with cannons placed in the stern and bow of the ship. A trip down the bannister bars or slide leads sailors to the lower deck where they will find a viewing port, treasure chest and lock, sleeping hammocks and play desks.
Complementing Flagstone’s Adventure playground, this playground is filled with numerous play opportunities that motivate children and adults to play and use their imagination. Designed for inclusive play opportunities, the ship has activities on every level that are catered to children of varying abilities.
Other elements of this incredible playground include green island mounds where children can sit or rest and take in the monstrous ship. A double bay swing equipped with a classic seat and toddler seat encourages children to swing towards the sky.
Urban Play would like to commend PEET for placing priority on parks within their community and would like to thank their collaborators CUSP Landscape and KOMPAN.
