Chess board and barbeque pad
The open green space near the Gloucester Street frontage has been retained for ball games and other recreational uses. Some students at the school enjoy playing chess and a coloured concrete chess board and pieces have been included in the proposed landscape plan. The chess ‘board’ doubles as a barbeque pad.
Chess pieces will be stored in storage seats, with backs and arms, near an accessible picnic table. This corner, with two new deciduous trees to provide shade in summer, can be used by groups, or parents watching children play. Additional seating is provided near the Worcester Street entrance.
to attract wildlife, a dry river bed and stepping posts are incorporated in the nature play area. Other features are:
- Mound for climbing and digging
- Informal paths through the garden beds
- Boulders and logs for climbing and balancing
- Talk tubes
An asphalt path ensures some of these features are more accessible.
