PUTTING FUN TO THE TEST
VIP playground testers descended on an Upper Caboolture playground at an exclusive launch event last month.
More than 100 children applied to be among the first to play at Fortress Group’s Bunya Adventure Playground, which officially opened to the public last month at their Riverparks development. Fortress Developments sales manager Garett Kleinschmidt said local children were invited to road test the playground, giving them exclusive access in exchange for their expert opinion of the playground.
“We received hundreds of emails for children applying for the special job which was advertised on Facebook,” Mr Kleinschmidt said.
“Experience was critical and 60 children were hired.”
Mr Kleinschmidt said the new park was the centrepiece of more than 10ha of parkland and green open space.
“We have retained millions of dollars worth of existing natural vegetation – we saved all the surrounding Bunya pines and aptly named the park after them – to carve out the playground from natural bushland,” he said.
“The playground is innovative and takes advantage of its natural surrounds to provide shade and a setting that is naturally stunning. It’s designed to enhance an active lifestyle and as a place to bring together family and friends in relaxed natural surrounds.
“There is something for everyone with an array of active and passive recreational spaces where residents of all ages can gather to relax, socialise and exercise.”
