Wallands Primary School Rainscape


The playground at Wallands Primary School was of a typical design with a large flat area of hard, impermeable surfacing. There were high laurel hedges around the edge which provided some shelter but blocked beautiful far-reaching views. Good for playing football and other sports, there was not much of interest for children who have other styles of play. During moderate rainfall large puddles sat on the surface and water eroded down a grassy bank, ultimately heading off site and increasing volumes of run-off flowing down roads through the urban catchment.

The Aquifer Partnership (TAP) partnered with Wallands Primary School to renovate the playground creating an inspirational rainscape with emphasis on education and play opportunities.
