Kings Park

Kings Park is located on the site of the former Denistone East Bowling Club, which ceased operating in 2012. In 2015 City of Ryde commenced an extensive consultation process to resolve the best use of the site, resulting in giving the park back to the community as a much needed green open space. Having an area that can be used by local school kids as well as all members of the community was very important. The site has challenging terrain as a legacy of having two stepped bowling greens. Once we established equal access from Kings Road, the upper area was formed into a generous open lawn area. The central part of the site was selected for a play area – replacing existing Bowling Club building. The steep terrain lends itself to interesting play experiences and provides a journey through landscape, with a winding pathway leading down to another flat area that includes a multipurpose sport court. This type of landscape gives us the opportunity to custom design play elements that we really enjoy and we look forward to finished product.
