"Play energises us and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities."

Playspaces – Design & Construct

Designing and installing a nature-based play environment is an exciting undertaking. We offer a ‘one stop shop’ service to make the whole process as simple as possible. When it is installed, we strive to make the play environment look like it was always meant to be there by ensuring the sites natural assets are used to their best advantage.

Projects are tailored to accommodate:

  • Your preferred play elements

  • Your budget

  • Your consultative needs

  • Your staging needs

  • Your target 'players'

  • Your joint or multi-stakeholder governance model

  • And any other requirements

We welcome community involvement and if there are people who want to participate and get their hands dirty, we are very happy to include them in the project.

Playground Development

The foreword of the Australian Standard 4685 states:

"The primary aim of a playground should be to stimulate a child’s imagination, provide excitement and adventure in safe surroundings, and allow scope for children to develop their own ideas of play. Ideally playgrounds should encourage development of motor skills and present users with manageable challenges to develop physical skills and to find and test their limits. In order to provide these challenges, a balance must be found between risk and safety."

Nature Play Solutions’ people have a thorough knowledge of the relevant Australian Standards and we use a risk/benefit framework to assess children’s outdoor play environments and help guide the design process – this approach helps us ensure our playgrounds are safe environments, while keeping the focus on fulfilling children’s play and developmental needs.
