A Communal Landform Garden to promote mental and physical well-being by experiencing equipment-free play and nature engagement. Lusty Street Reserve is an existing public recreation space but is currently devoid of any human activity. My vision to recognise the full potential of the site is to develop the vacant space into an engaging community space that connects directly to Wolli Creek Station by an underground passageway and to Cooks River Walk across Wolli Creek utilising the existing sewage aqueduct infrastructure. Public and semi-public spaces, artistic sculptures, architectural follies will be incorporated in the design of this community park to create a hierarchy of experiences to take back home. This landform garden will mark the entrance to the Bardwell Parklands and Wolli Creek Green Grid Corridor. Native Planting, use of Local Materials, Landforms that generate and break Visual and PhysicalConnections, Dog-Friendly Park, Clear Way-finding, Low-lit but Safe Spaces during night-time. Planting for the site is proposed with 80% Australian Native Species and balance ornamental non-native species for varied visual experiences, planted according to their solar requirements.
