With a spotlight on the first stop of our tour; the Karingal Hub Happy Camp, attendees will get a behind the scenes understanding of:
– Contained play for reduced fall zone and area constraints.
– Use of timber in large scale bespoke design.
– Timber modularity and its sustainable and green footprint outcomes.
– Modern/architectural yet playful design.

We’ll be joined by the architects, builders, council staff and equipment suppliers that made each location come to life – including Craig Tan ArchitectsRoberts CoUrban Edge Landscape ArchitectsLark Industries and City of Casey.

Lark Industries – Play Up, Work Out

Karingal Hub Happy Camp is the result of a collaborative design approach between Lark Industries and their partner Lappset Group. The custom structures take inspiration from some of Lappset’s core modular and proprietary ranges, including Finno and Cubic which have been developed and configured to create a new and exciting play solution, previously not attempted.

The design comprises three towers from the Cubic range, with varied accessibility and play engagement. Each cube tower provides accessibility to the main three storey centrepiece, with large slides providing an exciting descent. The second element has been coined the Vertical Maze and provides an immersive puzzle of ups, downs and sideways movements, offering a multitude of pathways, challenges and adventures. It takes inspiration from the favourite game Snakes and Ladders and ensures varied experiences for all ages.

197 Karingal Drive, Frankston

Riverfield Estate at Clyde, exemplifies the remarkable range of Lark Industries partner Lappset’s ready-to-install offerings. This development showcases a diverse array of play equipment, including a multi-activity tower, a double swing, a carousel, and a rocker – all essential elements for creating a thriving and enjoyable playspace.

As the pièce de résistance, the landscape architect, Urban Edge, for the developer Brown Property Group, has chosen Lappset’s most extensive off-the-shelf product: a multi-activity tower designed to accommodate individuals of all ages and abilities. This impressive tower features a substantial 4 meter high slide, along with lower options at 1 meter and 2 meters, making it accessible to the community.

The tower further incorporates various climbing elements, including balancing bridges and nets, leading to a spacious cubbyhouse-style tower with a fully enclosed design. At the top, there’s a lookout vantage point offering a commanding view of the surroundings.

Notably, all additional items have been coordinated in a vibrant red colour scheme that aligns with the estate’s colour palette.

1895 Ballarto Road, Clyde

This vibrant and adventurous playspace is a collaboration with Landsite for Five Squared Property Group. The playground is a must-visit destination set within the verdant five-hectare park precinct in the new Bloom Estate, a flourishing Clyde North neighbourhood.

The two impressive towers, from our partner Spiel-Bau, provide ample opportunities to scale the structures in many varied ways, with the larger tower replicating the layout of opencast mining equipment.

The timber climbing and balancing track provides opportunities for children to fully engage in climbing and finding pathways over and through the logs. This develops and maintains their vestibular system – something that children who play in more regimented environments can miss out on.

A double swing set from Lark Industries partner Lappset ensures little ones won’t miss out on all the fun.
