Located within the picturesque Ripley Valley, the new playspace at Monterea Ripley has an abundance of play activities for the whole family. Designed in collaboration with Saunders Havill Group, Interface Landscapes and Kompan Australia. Grab a picnic blanket, a basketball and settle in for the day at the new linear park which borders natural bushland that is designed to provide refuge for wildlife.
As you drive closer to the playground, it is hard to miss its vibrant colours and unique, wonderful structures that excite kids from afar. The colour palette found throughout the linear park and shade sails pay homage to the radiant Monterea Ripley logo. Designed to engage all of the 7 senses, the playground offers play opportunities such as: sliding, climbing, tactile, swinging, balancing, sharing, role play and cause and effect.
For the littlies, a KOMPAN Triple Play Tower will engage them in hours of learning through play as they touch and feel the manipulative play panels, listen to the songs they create on the music panel and enjoy a whizz down the slides or a twist down the curly climber.
A Tipi Carousel, See Saw and Swing provides an incredibly fun way for children to develop their sense of balance, proprioception and train the vestibular system. A KOMPAN Medite Climbing Frame offers a 3-dimensional climbing experience where kids can climb up, down and side to side. Membranes provide a space for rest and socialising as mini mates climb to the top around you. The membranes always provide a faster and easier way to reach the top! Twisted nets, inclined nets and a slide are an exciting exit from the climbing labyrinth.
Climbing galore as children make their way from the Medite to the climbing Bloqx where they are challenged as they make their way to the top of the geometric sculpture. As kids make their way along the linear park, they will find double trampolines where kids will spend countless hours jumping high into the sky. Kick about grass provides the perfect spot for a soccer game, game of touch or a picnic and a basketball court will be filled with a myriad of cheers as families battle it out shooting hoops.
