Just minutes away from the city’s main streets, Denmark Hill Conservation Reserve is a rare urban environmental gem. As well as being a site of cultural importance to Traditional Owners, it has a prolific history connected to Ipswich’s mining boom. The project brief was to create a nature playground to help reactivate this hidden, somewhat forgotten bushland.

Hand carved from native Australian ironbark, the play elements featured in the log obstacle course include balance logs, steppers, climbing nets and a basket swing. Tall log play elements complement TLCC’s use of cultural landscape poles, which represent ancient smoke signals used by the Traditional Owners.

The playground was supplied by Natura’s subsidiary brand, Play Works.
