Variety Livvi's Place at Stockland’s Edgebrook community has taken out the ‘2021 Park of the Year Award’ at this year’s prestigious Parks & Leisure Australia Awards for Excellence.
Stockland has worked alongside City of Casey, Variety, Spiire and allied health professionals and behavioural therapists to bring this inclusive park to life, catering for children of all abilities, especially those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This fully-fenced and inclusive park at our Stockland Edgebrook community opened in December 2020 and is the first of its kind in South-East of Melbourne. Featuring water sensory zones, quiet nooks and interactions with nature, these themed zones help those living with autism to find calmness through selective, abstract and non-competitive play.
Each apparatus also has signage explaining what is involved to guide the journey for all children including refuge pods, where children are able to relax before returning to the key play areas.
From barbecue pavilions to four themed zones, Variety Livvi's Place at Edgebrook is now an award-winning inclusive playspace for residents and the broader community to enjoy all year round.
