Occupying an area of Sydney formerly known as Pimelea, Lizard Log Parklands is a perfect weekend getaway for city dwellers. The redevelopment project, designed by architecture firm McGregor Coxall, offers spacious playgrounds, barbecue areas, walking and bicycle tracks, facilities powered by solar panels and grassy plains irrigated with grey water.
McGregor Coxall has upgraded the park’s infrastructure and fitted out new facilities in an environmentally friendly way, creating a design that is sensitive to the rural nature of the site and underpinned by a strong sustainable strategy. Using recycled materials wherever possible, the architects have designed facilities which use energy generated by solar panels. Part of the park is irrigated using grey water.
One of the many amenities is the children’s playground area which features a scramble hill, climbing boards, slides and fireman’s poles. The entire junior cycle track uses grey water through a play pump and a water course system. Parents can keep an eye on their kids from a close distance, while enjoying their barbecue.
