Adventurescape Playground is set within a new master-planned residential development, Austin Lakes estate. The playground is the first phase of a multi-age play and recreation precinct centred around a large open lawn area and pavilion that allows for large family and community gatherings, located adjacent a lake with a small beach area that encourages interaction with the water.

PLAN E’s design for Adventurescape draws its inspiration from the historical agricultural references of the area that has been transformed into a fun farm themed playground that excites children’s imagination. The park includes a range of fun and challenging elements such as a 35 metre flying fox, rope climbing challenge, and a giant pig incorporating a part climbing frame and slide. Continuing the farm theme, a range of life size animals and farm machinery sculptures are located within the playground site which enables exploration and self discovery. The playground surrounds feature a large open lawn, and a range of amenities, including picnic shelters, barbecues and toilets, enable a day-long event for the whole family.
Sustainability and long term maintenance has been a key consideration in the design of the park, with the use of robust and durable materials and construction techniques. Planting within and around the playground features native south west WA species, many endemic to the area.
Since opening in January 2016, this Playground has become a destination for the greater Perth region, with families travelling over one hour to have an enjoyable family day out.
