Long Bay Primary Playground

Long Bay Primary School had a large space to work with and Playco wanted to maximize the space available by packing it full of play!

Using a wooden structure, ropes and overhead equipment and a fun colour palette, we spend a long time envisioning what it would be like for the kids of all ages to flow through the entire structure, creating one large space for all age groups that the students could all enjoy at the same time.
