Townsville’s outdoor offerings continue to grow with the opening of the highly-anticipated Junction Park at Stockland North Shore.
The park’s Giant Double Tower playground is the first design of its kind to be delivered in Australia and stands over nine metres tall. The multi-level tower is filled with over 150 physical, cognitive and sensory play activities to cater to children of all ages and abilities.
The playground includes four unique slides, a Tipi Spinner and jumping pillow, and a toddler play hut. Junction Park also features a BBQ, bench seats, sheltered tables, a drinking fountain and dog bowl to allow friends and family to enjoy time with their furry friends and relax while watching their little ones venture through the play space.
Junction Park will be nestled alongside the anticipated Junction Precinct – a mixed-use precinct which will include a coffee shop, display village, sales centre and outdoor public spaces – and will connect the northern and southern areas of the community.
Rachel Dunstan, Senior Development Manager at Stockland North Shore, said: “Junction Park is a great outdoor space and a fantastic addition for the North Shore community, providing a meeting place for parents, friends, and kids to socialise and play.
“As our community grows, it’s exciting to be able to offer our residents another interactive park that has a thrilling and adventurous play experience.”
“We have created an inclusive playground that has been designed so children of all ages and abilities can play together, which ticks our sustainability goal to improve equitable access to our assets,” said Ms Dunstan.
The playground was created by leading playground and fitness equipment supplier Kompan and designed by Urban Play.
Tobias Volbert, Playground Designer at Urban Play, said: “The creation of accessible and inclusive play spaces is fundamental in fostering community growth within Australia.
"We’re proud to collaborate with Stockland to create an inclusive play experience at North Shore. We know how integral parks and playgrounds are to communities and are thrilled to help provide an opportunity for residents to come together and enjoy a healthy and active outdoor lifestyle," Mr Volbert said.
North Shore is located just 13 kilometres from Townsville’s CBD, and is conveniently designed to provide an interconnected network of schools, shopping, dining, bushland trails and transport for its community – all just a short walk from home.
