Royal Park Melbourne, Australien

The Royal Park is the largest park in Melbourne

This fascinating playground, composed of natural play equipment, features a climbing area with several rope and balancing structures, nets and viewing platforms, a water play area with a range of pumps, channels, damming and mud play elements as well as embankment slides that have been incorporated uniquely into the existing stone landscape. There is also a Bow Bridge, specially designed for people who use a wheelchair. It represents a very special meeting point, not least because of its attractive appearance.
What makes this playground so unique is its natural design and the way in which it has been so sensitively integrated into the surrounding landscape; the result of close cooperation between the City of Melbourne and Richter Spielgeräte.
