A diverse 'play-scaped' space for a centre in Melbourne's Docklands

The Harbour Family and Children's Centre's landscaped outdoor area was designed by Hassell. Located on the rooftop of a supermarket in the Melbourne Docklands - the centre aims to showcase Lady Gowrie's vision for outdoor play as a fundamental aspect of early childhood development.

The courtyard is a diverse and tactile series of nature-based play spaces that provide a backdrop for the facility's learning programmes.

Incorporating two sandpits, digging patch, water play zone kitchen garden and a flexible use softball area, the gardens vary in theme to showcase the diversity of the natural world.

This unique learning environment is an important addition to community infrastructure within a fast-growing high density commercial and residential precinct.
