MARIE WALLACE RESERVE MASTERPLAN

Marie Wallace Reserve is a much loved space in Bayswater. As part of a broader masterplan for the entire reserve, Playce has created a unique all ages unstructured activity space in the heart of the space.

Following intensive consultation with the Knox Youth council, Bayswater Primary school and community drop in day on site, Playce was empowered to create something for the “older kids”, but to also consider spaces for community events and combination of fitness and play for all ages. The resultant playful hub contains a diverse range of skateable spaces, ball courts, parkour and climbing areas, a fitness course, play areas, sand activity area, stage and market space.

Designed for everyone in the community to use throughout the day, the hub has a fitness and personal training focus in the morning, caters for smaller children, carers and older residents during the day then becomes an active hub for tweens and teens after school.
