An exciting adventure playground featuring a giant slide, climbing tower, tunnels, nets and swings is the centrepiece of this child-friendly park. Sydney artist Nuha Saad worked closely with the landscape architects to design the playground’s colourful equipment and soft-surface floors.
The park on Amelia Street near the corner of O’Dea Avenue in Waterloo covers more than 4,000sqm of outdoor space. It includes a landscaped picnic and barbecue area, bike racks, and handball and table tennis courts.
Wulaba is an Aboriginal word of the Gadigal people, meaning ‘rock wallaby’. Rock wallabies were once a regular sight around Waterloo, which was home to the largest swamp in the district until it was replaced with development in the early 20th century.
The park’s concept design was produced by Gallagher Ridenour Landscape Architecture and further developed by award-winning landscape architects Sturt Noble Associates. Wulaba Park has been created by the City in partnership with developer Meriton, as part of a voluntary planning agreement for its residential development at
54–60 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore officially opened the park on Saturday 2 April 2016.
