Cowpasture Road and The Horsley Drive, Abbotsbury, NSW

Lizard Log Playground

Designed by award winning playspace designer Fiona Robbé, and constructed by Timber Creations, this is one of the best playgrounds in Australia.

The timber used to make this amazing playscape came from trees within the park itself that were dying and had to be taken down.

These trees were estimated to be in excess of 80 years old.


The idea for this play environment was to connect and follow the natural beauty to the rhythms of the wood. This can be seen in the unique twists and shapes, that dictated the design of the unique play elements.

The playground was crafted with a lot of thought, care and collaboration to create an extraordinary outdoor play space for children, where they can interact with nature as they discover themselves and the world around them.
