2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Landscape Architecture Award for Parks and Open Space

Oaklands Park and Wetland by TCL (Taylor Cullity Lethlean)

Jury citation:

This work clearly shows the benefits landscape architects can bring when they lead green infrastructure projects. At its heart is a functional wetland, which harvests water from the Sturt River for the irrigation of thirty open spaces and for groundwater recharge. The design integrates the wetland into the site topography, retaining existing trees and maximizing ecological value. A circuit path allows visitors to interact with a mix of formal and natural spaces. The project is commended for its restraint and for the creation of diverse immersive spaces for the community to relax in and explore nature. It shows a high level of collaboration between the council, its partners and the designers.

Location: Oaklands Park (SA)
