Spiire was engaged by Village Building Co. to create a Town Park as a centrepiece of the South Jerrabomberra Estate.
It is part of a larger scope of works at South Jerrabomberra, with our multidisciplinary team working closely with key stakeholders on this significant addition to the Queanbeyan region.
The Town Park is located in a large-scale buffer zone of the estate and positioned to be a district park and focal point for the future community, which will include approximately 1500 residential dwellings and a Local Activity Centre.
Our design for the Town Park features a range of recreational and community facilities, such as a Learn to Ride space, community centre, play space including nature play, BBQ and amenity area, a village green, a grassed amphitheatre and floral entry feature.
Our Landscape Architecture team’s vision centres on creating a simple but strong geometric design language to give the open space a sense of structure and function. A large circular green space with a spiral of surrounding activities connects the site with its setting and provides a seamless sequence of interactions with the park’s active and landscape features.
The design integrates the community centre, learn to ride space, play space and BBQ area to provide opportunities for as wide a range of users as possible to enjoy the facilities and opportunities to enhance community participation and health and wellbeing.
Our Landscape and Civil Engineering teams worked in partnership to rationalise grading and use level changes as opportunities to create an amphitheatre and manage stormwater.
The landscape character of the park emphasises the planting of large canopy trees to reduce urban heat and provide shade for the variety of facilities. These trees were selected in collaboration with our client and the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council. They reinforce the park’s geometric structure and give it year-round colour and form.
