Named after Phyl and Michael Stoker, neighbours and past residents of Castlecrag, to recognise their contribution to the care and welfare of children.
The design of this playspace is based on an abstract interpretation of the Castlecrag peninsula. The suburb was designed by Walter Burley Griffin, who named the streets after architectural elements in a castle. These elements were then interpreted and installed as playful features of the playground including the Tower, Barricade, Parapet, Turret, Cortile and Redoubt. The swing and slide were created using old wharf timbers. A play on words resulted in the invention of the statue of Walter the Burly Griffin. The plinth on which the statue sits, celebrates the work of the Stokers.
