Orana Park provides for a rich array of experiences and interests, through effective layering and integration of diverse elements and spaces. Its distinctive, bespoke and arts-driven design extends from the rideable circuit and daring play equipment with dramatic verticality, to sculptural entry statements large and small – a truly human scale experience.

The axial entry sequence is intersected by dynamic play spaces, and an inviting and protective canopy with active and restive equipment, for a broad range of age groups and interests. The park is framed by local streets and active house frontages. The result invites social interaction and supports safety and enjoyment in this valuable public asset.
