Jubilee Park Playground
“Creating conversations and inspiring play – a shade structure as functional as it is beautiful”
The refurbishment of Jubilee Park in the inner-city suburb of Glebe was an important project for the local community. Working in close partnership with the City of Sydney and Sue Barnsley Design, the Fleetwood Urban team was engaged to deliver a centrepiece of one of the new play structures – a geometrically complex ‘butterfly’ fabric shade shelter, as beautiful as it is functional.

Scope of Work
Fleetwood Urban was chosen to construct the intricately detailed geometric structure of the new shelter. Working in collaboration with Sue Barnsley Design we explored the best ways to maximise the creative and structural integrity of the structure. To minimise disruption to the local community, the shelter’s frame was manufactured off site using our extensive facilities in Sydney. The shade element was then assembled onsite using reinforced edge and rope tensioning to hold the stunning ‘lime fizz’ shade fabric in position.
I think they did a really good job. It's nice to see how they put money back into the community.
