Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Safari Park children’s playground has won the Kidsafe 2010 National Playspace Design Awards for public playspaces in Regional Parks.
The Zoo’s Safari Park playground designed by Spackman Mossop Michaels landscape architects, with Taronga Western Plains Zoo and artist Tim Johnman, topped a competitive field of playspaces to take top honours in the Regional Parks category.
Everyone involved in the project is very excited about receiving this award which reaffirms how wonderful this play area is for families visiting the Zoo.
The most exciting aspect to this announcement is that this award-winning playground will soon be part of the new free access area of the Zoo which opens in November.
This playground area will be a new, free recreational space for Dubbo, and it is reassuring to parents that their children can play safely in this great space.
The Kidsafe Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the provision of safe, creative playspaces across Australia.
