Natural Play Environment

Delivered 2013

“Urbanlogic have created fun times for the kids and in my son's case, that was Pirate Day!”

Urbanlogic were engaged as the landscape architects and detail / construction designers to design and construct a natural play environmental for The Next Generation Childcare facility in Birkenhead, Auckland.

We carefully designed layers and diversity of play experiences, for children to interact and reconnect with the natural world. The creative and undulating terrain creates places for social activity, active play, educational and most important imagination. The environment is designed to provide open-ended play experiences that will maintain children's interest upon repeated visits.

We designed and engineered:

- An 8 meter long broken pirate ship marooned on a beach.

- Edible gardens

- Cart track

- Grass mounds

- Sound cones

"Urbanlogic have created fun times for the kids and in my son's case, that was Pirate Day! Everybody got involved and dressed for the ocassion. It was great to see that they could create new and exciting days for the children depending on what was the flavour of the day for each individual child".
