Lizard Log Playground
Sydney's Original Nature Playground
The old Pimelea Park had condemned Greybox trees, which were dying and had become dangerous.
These trees were estimated to be in excess of 80 years old, and the community was sad to see them go. So a rescue operation was conceived - re-purpose the trees for play!
The idea for this play environment was to connect and follow the natural beauty to the rhythms of the wood. This can be seen in the unique twists and shapes, that dictated the design of the unique play elements.
The playground was crafted with a lot of thought, care and collaboration to create an extraordinary outdoor play space for children, where they can interact with nature as they discover themselves and the world around them.
