PLAYFORD ALIVE TOWN PARK SKATE PLAZA
This very significant skate and youth plaza at Playford is part of a much larger town park implementation for Renewal SA undertaken by Aspect. Playce worked closely with a local riders group to create a high quality skate space. Designed with a large open skateable urban plaza, the first of its kind in Adelaide, the space then flows into a large combination bowl.
One of the main features of the park is the layout maximises social inclusion as it sits near an adjacent community centre so young people can hang out and enjoy the space whilst engaging with the services provided at the local community hub and nearby commercial town centre.
The park opened in June 2015 and is being well received by the entire skate and BMX community.
