Oxford Street Reserve, Leederville
A lengthy process of community consultation undertaken by the inner-urban City of Vincent resulted in the development and implementation of a suite of enhancements and upgrades to transform and invigorate the Leederville Town Centre. Oxford Street Reserve was identified as a cornerstone project in the overall program.
Landscape architects Blackwell & Associates worked with passionate community members, councillors and local council staff to create a multi-purpose park providing amenity for a variety of users. The new park now activates the southern end of Oxford Street, enabling people from nearby shops and cafes to spill and occupy the site, bringing with it activity, interest and a place for the community to connect.
Blackwell & Associates selected our Urban Edge street furniture range for this ‘urban park’ project and specified seating, triangular table settings and wheelie bin enclosures with custom graphics for use throughout the site.
They utilised our range alteration service to design a bar-height stool for use in a shady raised seating area that provides parents with an uninterrupted view of the nature playground. Here they can relax with a well-deserved coffee from the adjacent café!
We also designed a chess table setting for the ‘urban play area’ adjacent to the Leederville Skate Park (which also features a bocce pit and outdoor ping pong table).
These new products are now available as an integral part of our Urban Edge street furniture range – perfect for application in both town and park projects.
