Take a Walk through Livvi’s Place with designer, Ben Richards
How did we develop this park?
Livvi’s Place, an initiative of the Touched by Olivia Foundation, was designed in consultation with leading academics, play, disability, and landscape experts and the local community, Livvi’s Place aims to dramatically reduce the barriers experienced by children with special needs and their families, helping to give them a level playing field for life.
Centrally located, Livvi’s Place was built for children with all forms of disability and from all parts of Sydney. The playground’s unique design and equipment addresses the needs of children with various forms of disability including mobility, vision and hearing impairment as well as spectrum disorders such as autism.
Livvi’s Place means so much for a lot of local families, including Sandra Casinader who is the mother of two children with autism.
“When I saw the playground, I actually started crying because every single thing that makes it so difficult for us and many of my friends in a similar situation to use a “typical” playground has been so completely addressed; the attention to detail is astounding.”
