Simpson Falls interpretive art play


Place Design Group, in partnership with Urban Art Projects were engaged by Brisbane City Council to develop a site plan incorporating nine interpretive play installations, associated physical and visual connections and planting to link the installations across the site. We had a diverse consultant team including UAP, a structural engineer, a Playground Safety Certifier and a writer, Simon Groth.

City Design provided their sketch concepts for the installations and we developed the design of these and their surrounds to produce a detailed design development plan, construction and engineering details of each element and costings for the project and its potential staging. This document was received with enthusiasm and three of the interpretive features have been approved for installation this year.

Three kookaburras wait for something to eat

Their sharp eyes spy their favourite treats

Things that crawl, wriggle, slink, and slide

Things that slither, scuttle, and glide

Find them a meal as you follow the path

When you reach the end, you could make them laugh.
