Bristow Smith Reserve Nature Playspace

The Bristow Smith Reserve Nature Playspace in Goolwa was officially opened on Sunday, 6 December 2015. 

This $600,000 playspace project was jointly funded by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and Alexandrina Council.

“The playspace provides a unique regionally significant open space to inspire connection with the local environment and engage local children in creative and imaginative play,” said Mayor Keith Parkes.

“It further provides children with physical, sensory and mentally stimulating play opportunities and allow all children to challenge themselves, irrespective of age and ability.”

The playspace features a 10-metre long restored wooden fishing boat, Parkour elements, water play with a creek bed, sensory wall, climbing nets, basket swings and stepping logs, along with an upgraded beach area, barbecues and shelters.

A number of the sensory elements of the play space have been funded through the generous $50,000 donation by the Fleurieu Philanthropy Foundation. This will include a sensory wall, musical and sound features and interpretive artwork  scattered throughout the playspace.
