Australia – ‘Adelaide Brighton Community Park’, Birkenhead, SA

We designed this pet-friendly park with Aspect Studios (Landscape Architects) for Adelaide Brighton Cement. Our aim was to design a park that encouraged movement (people and dogs) through the space and areas/zones for passive and active play.

The park design features an internal path for people and their dogs to walk, passive and active spaces for dogs to run, sniff and retreat. One of the features is the rubber mounds which break up the space, and act as a buffer between the different zones. In the design, the park amenities are scattered around the park to better distribute the park users and avoid potential ‘hot spots’ or conflict areas in the park.

Interesting Features:

  • Mounding to divide up the space
  • Active spaces for dogs to run
  • Passive spaces for dogs to sniff and explore
