The Lakes Church

Client: The Lakes Church
Location: Carins, Queensland, Australia
Construction Budget: $50,000 – $100,000
Completion Date: Fall 2016

A personal connection to Australia led to the construction and installation of Earthscape’s first playground outside of North America.  The Lakes Church in Cairns, Australia celebrated a grand opening to the delights and cheers of more than 70 children who explored the magnificent new space.

The playground includes a small log jam®, timber steppers and a notched log.  A small playhut is situated beside the sand and water play zone where children can also muck about in the outdoor kitchen.  Earthscape sent two installation crew members, Randy and Marcus, to ensure compliance in construction onsite and to assist local church members in making the playground a reality for local children.
