Laurimar, Victoria


Lend Lease

The park is designed around three restored brick wells and existing Eucalyptus camaldulensis (River Red Gum), Eucalyptus cladocalyx (Sugar Gum) and Pinus radiata (Pine Tree) trees. The wells provide a unique feature in the landscape and now form part of an interactive playground area, which comprises of a flying fox, swings, balance beams and a gravel bocce court. A shelter and separate pergola are located adjacent to these elements and provide convenient shade, shelter and seating opportunities. The shelter is located on a main view line overlooking an adjacent wetland and is located on the high point of the site. It is constructed of a galvanised metal frame and a galvanised corrugated skillion roof, with recycled spotted gum timber cladding, rusted steel plates and fixings. Brick pillars and a brick BBQ reference the original brick wells. A separate pergola frames views across to other hilltop open space reserve.
