The mature trees surrounding this Hamilton parkette inspired the City’s request for a woodland theme for this neighbourhood playspace. Research on local owls led to the selection of the eastern screech owl as the inspiration for the main climbing/slide feature. The play space is animated by a food-chain story whereby the owl is staring down at some scampering mice. The mice, eyeing up the acorns, are oblivious to the hovering owl. Who will eat what first?
Climbing posts with steppers, fallen logs, boulders and a basket swing round out additional elements for play.
