project detail

End Client: Brimbank City Council
Date: 2011
Project value: $5M

The Buckingham Reserve upgrade is part of Brimbank City Council’s commitment to greatly improve its municipal open spaces and park facilities.

Outlines developed and documented the adopted master plan for the district park, working closely with the client, environment groups, cultural heritage advisors and Ric McConaghy Playground Design to realise the ambitions of the proposal.

A substantial play space including natural and explorative play opportunities was designed by Ric McConaghy.

In anticipation of greater public use of the reserve, creek-side trails, observation decks, picnic areas, parking and active recreational facilities were included. The landscape themes were designed to encourage engagement with the natural environment and assist in the creation of a unique sense of space.
