One-of-a-kind Dragon Park At Arcadia Estate

With its book-themed street names, established schools on site and its generous green space, Arcadia estate has always been a community that encourages children to exercise their imaginations. But the new playground coming in 2021 is taking imaginative adventures to a whole new level.

Construction will commence on the nearly-one-hectare, $2.3 million park in Arcadia’s third neighbourhood next year and the centrepiece will be a playground featuring a massive dragon structure.

The all-abilities playground has been designed by Outlines Landscape Architecture, and will feature a custom-made dragon’s head, a climbable dragon’s body and dragon’s eggs created by the award-winning Agency of Sculpture, exclusively for Arcadia.

Satterley’s Senior Development Manager for Arcadia, Julian Hill, a qualified landscape architect, came up with the idea for the dragon. He says the project is exciting because it’s so distinctive.


Although final designs haven’t yet been confirmed, the dragon’s head will be a major feature, towering above the playground and the park. Each element will be built to provide challenges for children of different ages and abilities. A spokesperson from Outlines said this will be a vital part of the design.

Outlines says the playground has been designed with accessibility and inclusion in mind. They have deliberately designed a space where people of all abilities can play together, rather than feeling separated.

The park and playground is due to be completed in 2021.
