Progress Reserve, Coolaroo

We designed the landscape for Progress Reserve in Coolaroo with the community in mind. Our goal was to create a safe, accessible, and inclusive space that all can enjoy.


Our landscape design transformed the space into an outdoor community hub that features a new purpose-built play space that caters to all ages and abilities. To foster a sense of connection and fun, we implemented picnic and BBQ areas as well as a scooter track into the design, and to enhance the space’s natural beauty, we added garden bed areas and increased tree canopy.


Our design was influenced by the cultural diversity of the Hume community. The geometric patterns, vibrant blue colours, and soft fall rubber represent the language of the universe. The scooter track’s organic shape pays homage to the indigenous brown snake, which is believed to have inspired the name Coolaroo.
