FENG SHUI BE­COMES KID’S PLAY

The Courier-Mail - Home - - NEWS - EMILY BLACK

A developer has used the prin­ci­ples of the an­cient art of feng shui to de­sign Pal­lara Cen­tral Park at the Pal­lara res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity.

The park, which was launched with an event-packed af­ter­noon last month, fea­tures a birds nest swing, large arc lad­der, ping pong ta­ble and bright green tele-tubes.

Stock­land teamed with ac­cred­ited feng shui con­sul­tant Derelle Ball, of Cen­taine Con­sul­tants, and Ur­ban Play to cre­ate the oneof-a-kind in­clu­sive park.

Ur­ban Play man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ben Ur­ban said the play­ground used ar­chi­tec­turally- in­spired pieces to cre­ate a unique space for chil­dren of all ages.

“The dif­fer­ent play el­e­ments used not only in­spire their imag­i­na­tions, but also pro­vide skills and tools to nav­i­gate child­hood and be­yond through ac­tive and so­cial play,” Mr Ur­ban said.

Stock­land act­ing gen­eral man­ager for Queens­land David Laner said the ex­cit­ing park was a first for Stock­land’s res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties through­out Aus­tralia.

“Stock­land is well known for pro­vid­ing ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive parks and play spa­ces that en­hance our res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties and Pal­lara’s new feng shui park will of­fer a truly unique ex­pe­ri­ence for lo­cals,” Mr Laner said.

“The park fea­tures sooth­ing earth tones, a nat­u­rally flow­ing lay­out and a com­bi­na­tion of quiet and ac­tive spa­ces to pro­vide a haven to play or re­lax.

“The re­flex­ol­ogy walk was de­signed to en­cour­age peo­ple to take their shoes off and walk over rounded peb­bles on a gen­tly me­an­der­ing path to gen­tly mas­sage meridian points within the feet.”

Pal­lara is a new mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity in Bris­bane’s south­west­ern growth cor­ri­dor.
