Pentridge Children’s Lawn, Coburg VIC

To further enhance their significant transformation of the iconic former Pentridge Prison in Melbourne’s inner-North, our client Shayher Group required a structure that provided play value for a broad range of users and was understated and sympathetic to the surrounding history and landscape.

The Prison was originally established as a penal stockade in 1851 and was constructed of locally sourced bluestone, creating the iconic feature walls around the site.

The Custom Flora Adventure Track from our partner Lappset was the perfect fit with its neutral brown and beige tones and soft natural lines that nestle into the space and do not overpower the surrounding infamous bluestone backdrop.

The second stage of this project will take place soon and is set to include complementary items such as a swing, carousel, and rocker to complete the space.
