The Blaxland Riverside Park is a huge, 20,500 square meters playground at the Sydney’s Olympic Park. Planned and realized by JMD design, it opened its doors this summer. The idea was to make extensive, fence-free use of the landform, including tree houses, fountains, slides, climbing and swings. From now on, all family trips in Sydney will have one destination.
Swings, monkey bars and sandboxes are the usual sights we would expect to see in children’s playground. Denmark-based design and architecture firm, Monstrum, creates playgrounds that are visually stunning. Focusing on design, motor challenges and safety as their core, Monstrum plays with imaginative designs for kids to play in, with creations like big blue whales and surreal houses, to submarines and jet planes. It’s like a life-size visual dream for kids.
