Frankston City has been awarded a prestigious Landscape Architecture Award in the 2019 Australian Institute of Landscape Architects Awards Victoria.
Frankston City Mayor, Michael O’Reilly said the George Pentland Botanic Gardens play space, by Leaf Design Studio, was an awesome space for families to enjoy.
“The George Pentland Botanic Gardens is a tranquil space for our residents and visitors to enjoy and the new playground is especially enticing for the little ones these school holidays,” said the Mayor.
“It’s great for our Council officers and Leaf Design Studio to be recognised for the amazing design we now have to enjoy in Frankston City.”
Projects in the Landscape Architecture Award category are constructed play spaces or strategies that promote the notion of active play and embrace the temporal elements of the active play space.
The George Pentland Botanic Gardens will now be considered for the National Awards, with winners to be announced at the 2019 International Festival of Landscape Architecture to be held in Melbourne in October.
