Blaxland Riverside Park officially opened on the 1st of June 2012, over 1500m² of Rosehill TPV® was installed in two stages, initially in 2011 and then the rest in 2012. The surfaces continue to perform today, both in resistance to colour fading and the tactile integrity of the surface. The park is one of a number of parks that make up Sydney Olympic Parklands.
RosehillTPV® is unique in rubber wetpour, the individual virgin rubber granules are not porous, so they don’t absorb the polyurethane binder used in the wetpour process. This means that rather than hardening over time, the surface stays soft and continues to perform as intended. Along with a programmed, regular maintenance program, the surface will provide years of use.
The park is a credit to great landscape design, where visitors can enjoy the fantastic, imaginative designs in a magnificent location. The beauty of Blaxland Riverside Park is that it enables children to have a variety of play experiences as well as offering an exciting and imaginative play experience, while also encouraging adults to come and enjoy the park in families and groups.
Located on the shores of Parramatta River, spread over 3 hectares, the play space provides a colourful combination of play elements that includes high and steep landforms, water and sand, moving elements, nets, slides, tunnels and hidden spaces.
RosehillTPV® has been used globally for several years across such projects as the London Olympic Stadium Circle Bridge, Disney, Sea World & Universal Studios.
Surface Designs are wholesalers of rubber safety surfacing for indoor and outdoor sports and play surfaces. They are the sole distributors of Rosehill TPV®, and were the exclusive supplier of the rubber wetpour for the Blaxland Riverside Park project in 2011/2012.
