Train instead of boat?

May 5, 2009

Hi guys,

I was thinking that the park layout at the moment feels a little divided, maybe having a train that runs through the middle of the park will link all the areas together. The train will have different story book themes for each individual carriage and there will be play equipment within the train. Old steam trains are also a classic victorian icon. What do you all think?

Here’s a little sketch of my idea…

Hi all.

I apologise for being unable to attend the past two classes. I’ve been extremely sick with bronchitis.

Anyway I’ve been doing some research on different styles that we can adapt into our park design;

Here’s some work by metalworks artist, Shawn Lovell. She’s amazing and I think her style would work well for the fencing around the park…

This style would also be a nice influence for railings, tables, chairs etc.

I’ve been working on play equipment designs and I’ll post them when they’re complete.
