Asquith Park Playground

An inspiring nature playground

We love the way the elements in this park have interacted with the surrounding environment, encouraging children to explore the world around them.

The idea was fully tie in with the existing forest, to encourage children to explore and play with the natural environment.

It has been a huge success, encouraging many people to get involved in natural play, from all age-groups!

A semi-structured play area with a log playground begins near more standard playground equipment, and blends more and more into the trees, leading you in. Amongst the trees, simple structures act as supports for people to use the natural resources they can find, such as branches, leaves and sticks, to create self-build cubbies.​


  • Natural log adventure play area to climb over, under, and through, balance, jump and explore

  • Self build cubbies - frames for supporting found natural objects, leaves and branches

  • Stepping log trail leading into the natural bush

  • Balancing stilts with natural textured knots and knobs to hold

  • Feature trunk with a natural hidey hole for secret messages or storing found objects
