Examples of some themes that could be chosen are:
Fort Theme – Create a playground that emulates a fort/castle setting. E.g. Wooden platforms with ladders, balancing beams, flying foxes, etc. attached.
City Maze – Create a large maze which at night could be used for paintball/laser tag.
Circus Theme – Create a playground that incorporates circus/carnival elements into it. E.g. A helter-skelter, adjacent racing slides, trapeze bar on the swing set.
As an extension all playgrounds in the Parklands could be upgraded and given themes. Such themes could include: dinosaurs, space, music, food, vehicles, tree house, a sailing ship, etc. This would make the playgrounds not just any suburban playground but unique and draw families from across the city into the Parklands. If the playgrounds created are truly imaginative and distinctive, they will also act as tourist attractions for visiting families from across the country.
