Badger Weir Picnic Ground Amenities

Location: Healesville, Victoria
Client: Parks Victoria

In October 2016 storms devastated the Badger Weir Picnic Grounds including the toilet facilities and a footbridge. Parks Victoria commissioned Brazel Haley Maggs Architects to design a new footbridge of modular design that could be primarily fabricated off site and assembled on site utilizing existing footings. Close collaboration between our office, engineers and suppliers resulted in the reduction of material wastage and on site work. Materials were selected for their longevity and patron comfort and to ensure low to zero maintenance.

A standard ‘Metropolitan Toilet Facility’, as designed by Brazel Haley Maggs Architects, was adapted to suit the usage of the park. The materials used in this facility reflected those of the footbridge, providing a visual link/ connection, while still satisfying the brief and budget.
