The Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden is a new playspace situated in one of Sydney’s oldest and most loved parks. The WILD PLAY Garden provides a unique playspace in which children can develop an understanding for the natural environment.
Inspired by the existing attributes of the site – fig trees and surrounding parklands, ASPECT Studios’ approach was to create an immersive environment by keeping the design to a simple palette of natural materials and elements. In doing so, children are provided with a platform to explore, experiment, socialise, and learn through play.
Our ambition was to create an intricate series of spaces, defined by unique combinations of plants and natural materials that will inspire children of all ages to develop a deep love on nature.
The Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden (WILD PLAY) illustrates how landscape architecture can provide a nature based experience in which children develop a love of nature and the tools to negotiate risk, undertake inquiry, and develop social skills to build depth and resilience.
Join Sacha Coles – ASPECT Studios’ Founding Director and Kate Luckraft – ASPECT’s Sydney Studio Director for a project introduction and guided tour of the garden.
