Playgrounds

The George Gregan Foundation playgrounds are unlike any other playground in Australia. Each playground is tactile, interactive and enjoyable. The design and construction of the playgrounds is the result of significant specialised input from architects, children’s therapists, educators, doctors and patients. The estimated cost of each playground is in excess of $600,000. To date the Foundation has raised more than three million dollars from events held in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.

The first George Gregan Foundation playground opened in 2006 at The Children’s Hospital in Westmead. The Foundation’s second playground was opened at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Brisbane in 2008. The third all-access playground was opened at Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick in May 2010. In November 2013, the fourth playground was opened at the new Centenary Hospital for Women and Children in Canberra.

The Foundation most recently built an all access playground at the new Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, completed in November 2014.

Beyond these projects, we are in discussions with other major hospitals and hope that one day George Gregan Foundation playgrounds will feature in children’s hospitals across Australia.
