About the project

Re-imagined parkland for family use in Brisbane.
The Roma Street Parkland Playground & Children’s garden in the heart of Brisbane re-imagined an existing parkland in a way that would provide the community with an experience that would delight children and parents alike.
The largely botanical space has come to life through the inclusion of a play space that is integrated within a natural landform and celebrates its character- including the grandeur of the one hundred year old fig trees.
The design provides children with a journey through built and natural forms that present trees and flowers in a way that is exciting for children. The play experience is amplified by the inclusion of a Children’s Garden that features a range of useful and intriguing botanical species like sugar cane, gingers and an earthworm farm.
Roma Street Parkland Playground & Children’s Garden - in the heart of the city of Brisbane is well known for its beautiful parklands and exemplary subtropical gardens. It is less known for its existing play offering, which was largely disconnected and under-utilised.
