Redevelopment of the existing St. Kilda Adventure Park included remediating the existing material down to the landfill before laying an impermeable geomembrane layer. Above this T & J Constructions installed a subsurface drainage system to direct any water infiltration into the stormwater system.
Irrigated turf and areas of sand softfallwere constructed as part of a newly designed and landscaped play environment. Concrete edge beams and seating walls tie in these areas with a rubble path and shelter areas. A new half-court basketball area and a refurbished,wheelchair accessible swing were included as part of the works. Existing play equipment was refurbished and installed in rubber softfall. A BBQ area was also installed that required electrical to be laid from an existing switchboard.
Stage 1A also involved a road reconstruction across an area of Cockle St which provides access for the St. Kilda boat ramp.
