Fairfield Park – Obstacle Course

Designed by Playce Landscape Architects and Fairfield City Council as part of the Fairfield Park recreational precinct. The boot camp style obstacle course was to promote people aged 15 and over to be healthy and active.


Based on the Tough Mudder and Spartan courses or typical army-style boot training courses. It is designed for use by individuals or in groups.


Covering 7,500 square meters with more than a dozen elements.  Key elements to the course were the 3m high tree top walk, tyre and rope walls and 20m flying fox.  The design also incorporates an educational element that will include signage on natural resources within the park and educate visitors about the different types of trees in the Fairfield area.


The 3m high bell climb, balance beams, hurdles, rope crossing, monkey bars and see-saws can be used as a circuit course or individual elements used as standalone fitness equipment.


The obstacles and surrounding facilities are connected by concrete footpaths, decomposed granite paths and are interlaced with planting beds to soften the landscape.


Co-Ordinated Landscapes worked with Fairfield City Council and external designers to bring the equipment up to meet the Australian playground standards.
