Olivia Playspace

Changing the way families play, a blog by Lark Industries 

When Melbourne-based developer, Marantali, sought to create a playspace for Olivia Estate, a 1.27-hectare feature park at its master-planned community in Truganina, the goal was to deliver something unique.

 It had to be multi-generational, inclusive, and dynamic.

“We wanted a playground offering a range of equipment for various age groups, including seniors. Something completely different to anything available in Melbourne.” Marco Liali, Director, Marantali.

Marco contacted Ryan Longford, Lark Industries’ National Sales Manager, to discuss the options. Ryan says speaking directly with Marantali about its dream playspace made all the difference:

“Through speaking to Marantali, we were able to provide a first-hand look at the latest play experiences, which they may not have seen yet. We were able to give them a direct insight as to how they may be able to do things differently.” 

Lark Industries is the sole distributor of Yalp, experts in the development, design and manufacture of interactive smart play technology that combines the physical and digital worlds, and ensures everyone, regardless of age, ability, gender, or background has equal opportunity for play. Having direct access to Yalp, through Lark Industries, cemented Marco’s decision:

“Ryan is always open to looking at different types of equipment. So, after he showed me Yalp, it was a no brainer; it had all the ‘wow’ features and was something I really wanted to look at. So, we went to the Netherlands to see it, and Ryan joined us, which was great, as he gave us a good rundown.”

The Yalp difference delivers an Australian first in community playspaces

Olivia’s exciting new playspace includes traditional and industry-leading equipment, which brings together technology, gaming and outdoor equipment that is inclusive of all ages.

The driving force behind the park’s success as a state-of-the-art inclusive and interactive play space, is its use of the latest play technology. Olivia has two Yalp interactive products, both using technology and sensory engagement, such as touch, LED light responses, music and audible instructions that are all centred around physical movement and reaction. They engage the senses and encourage socialisation, teamwork, communication, problem solving, and movement.

The Yalp Sona, a first of its kind in Victoria, is a dance and play arch that works intuitively through the use of motion sensors. When users walk under the arch, they’re asked if they want to play a game. Different games can be selected at the touch of a button and allow several people to play together.

The Yalp Memo is a set of seven play pillars that emphasise learning through movement and fast-paced agility games that challenge children, youth, parents, and grandparents to experience engaging and unique play opportunities together. The Memo has numeracy games to promote mathematical skills, and spelling games that are linked to movement, so children are getting both mental and physical exercise benefits using the 360° LED touch panels. 

There’s something for everyone

The products are dynamic, they’re connected to the cloud, Marantali gets weekly play statistics and can upload new games, renew or change games, or adjust settings remotely to meet the community’s preferences. More than 60 games cover agility, speed, and reaction through racing, dancing, or musical chairs on a range of topics from maths, geography, and language to sustainability. The equipment is wheelchair accessible and has games that are practical for children and adults who may have an autism spectrum disorder or older people experiencing dementia.

Traditional play equipment

The playspace also features an exciting custom-designed Adventure Tower and Activity Track from Lappset. The tower houses five unique slides of varying heights and designs, including a large spiral slide extending from the feature tower standing 7m high. In addition to its versatile play value, the tower acts as focal point for the surrounding estate.

Traditional play equipment is also included with oxygen climbers, rockers, seesaws, a wheelchair accessible carousel, and a variety of swings from Lappset and is surrounded by a bike track from the team at Winslow Constructors.

The interactive technology complements this traditional play experience by offering new variety and opportunities for children and families. 

Collaboration is the key to success 

The Olivia Estate playspace was a genuine collaboration between Marantali, Lark

Industries, Human Habitats and Winslow Constructors; and an exciting first for all in designing/building an interactive playspace. 

“Collaboration between Council, client and designer was important because this project pushed boundaries. Joining forces to ask Melton Shire Council to think differently and offer something new was key. And at the end of the day, they realise they’ve got a great outcome at Olivia Estate. 

Marantali was great, there was no value management. Marco was prepared to put a bit of money up front, for ongoing maintenance, and support a great outcome. He wanted to leave a legacy, something different for the community.” says Darren Atkinson, Director, Human Habitats. 

Human Habitats says working closely with Lark, early on, was also invaluable: 

“Lark has a great reputation – having that early conversation with Ryan and seeing how Lark can support a vision is critical. They’re not just selling a piece of equipment, they are getting on the front foot, working with designers, coming up with themes and looking at unique ways of combining equipment. That makes a difference,” says Darren. 

Josh Rolfe, Project Manager at Winslow Constructors agrees, “it was good to see it evolve from the plans and come to life. And Lark was great, they’re always accessible and stuck to timelines, which made it so much easier.”

The multi-generational, all-inclusive, and dynamic Smart Technology Play offers an open and interactive arena for everyone in the Olivia community to get involved and play together.

Physical and Cognitive Development: enhances motor skills, coordination, and problem solving while encouraging imaginative play and decision-making.

Inclusive and Accessible Play: promotes social interaction, a sense of belonging and encourages play across generations, demographics, ages and both physical and cognitive abilities.

Multi-sensory Engagement: engages multiple senses, stimulating exploration, and fostering cognitive and emotional growth.

Creative and Imaginative Play: sparks creativity, through the use of internet connected technology – providing endless game opportunities, ever changing content and experiences that promote movement, imagination, and playful competition.

Technology Integration: incorporates lights, sounds, and touch-sensitive surfaces, creating an immersive environment that captivates children’s interest.

Family Bonding and Social Interaction: brings families together, fostering connections, communication skills, and social development among parents, siblings, and friends.

Olivia Estate Blog - Reducing your winter energy bills

Reducing Your Winter Energy Bills

Reducing Your Winter Energy Bills

 With the colder weather upon us (and interest rates on the rise), it’s time to look at our options for reducing our electricity consumption and energy bills.

Understanding your energy bill

 The first step to reducing your energy consumption, and therefore, your costs is to understand your energy bill; “there are many costs involved in providing electricity and gas to your home. These costs and their relative contribution to the total amount payable are not provided in detail on most energy bills.” Energy Made Easy provides information about what’s on your bill along with other helpful information and advice:

Key factors affecting your energy bill

 A range of factors determines the amount of energy used in our homes:

  • Local climate,
  • The size of the home and whether it’s a townhome, apartment, unit or freestanding,
  • The design of the home including insulation, orientation, and the use of passive heating a cooling,
  • Features and appliances including the size, number and energy efficiency of major appliances,
  • Habits and personal preferences.

The best time to consider energy efficiency is when you’re building a new home or planning renovations to your existing home. But there are always things we can do to improve energy efficiency in our established homes. (May, 2023)

How to reduce your energy bills

 Again, details many ways to reduce your energy consumption and bills:

  • Compare:
    • compare your energy use in the same period last year, look into reasons and consider why it has changed and options for reducing it.
    • compare providers using websites Compare the Market and iSelect to see if other providers are offering better rates, discounts or sign up bonuses.
  • Consider:
    • Consider the times of the day you use the most energy. Move away from using major appliances (like your washing machine and dishwasher) during peak times where possible (your provider should list peak times on your bill, if applicable).
  • Take action:
    • Use thicker bedding so you can turn the heating down or off overnight,
    • Only heat the rooms you’re using,
    • Let sunlight and warmth in where possible and close blinds and curtains before it gets dark,
    • Use your ceiling fan to circulate warm air,
    • Block draughts with window and door seals,
    • Avoid using the showers and baths to warm up (keep showers short where possible),
    • Turn off appliances not in use off at the wall (e.g. TVs, computers, and consoles).

 For more information and to help reduce energy bills year-round check out’s seasonal advice.

Rebates and bonuses

 Stay in the loop with rebates offered by your provider, other providers, and the Government. 

 At the time of publishing, eligible households can apply for a $250 power saving bonus (between March 2023 to 31 August 2023). The application takes approximately 10 minutes and, if successful, the Government provides a cheque or bank deposit for $250 to assist with your energy bills.

 You can find more information and the eligibility criteria and application process at

Major Changes to the Commute from the Western Corridor

Major Changes to the Commute from the Western Corridor.

Local and State Governments are working towards improving the commute into the city for the rapidly growing population in the Western Corridor.

West Gate Freeway and Tunnel

The West Gate Freeway is one of Melbourne’s busiest roads, carrying over 200,000 vehicles a day; a single break-down or accident can bring the freeway to a standstill. To reduce traffic and travel time for commuters from the growing western suburbs, the State Government has partnered with Transurban to deliver the now, well underway, West Gate Tunnel and increase the number of lanes on the freeway.

In addition to providing a second river crossing, the tunnel project works will provide an additional four lanes to the West Gate Freeway.

Victoria’s Big Build website advises, when the project is complete it will:

  • provide a second river crossing, reducing reliance on the West Gate Bridge,
  • widen the West Gate Freeway from 8 to 12 through lanes,
  • ease congestion for the daily commuters,
  • better connect Melbourne’s west to CityLink, Footscray Road, Dynon Road, and Wurundjeri Way,
  • better manage traffic flows and incidents through smart technology.

For more information on the West Gate Tunnel Project, visit the Big Build website.

Hopkins Road Level Crossing Removal Works

In addition to the West Gate Tunnel Project, level crossing removals form part of Victoria’s big build. 

Hopkins Road level crossing has been added to the project to make the City of Melton level crossing free by 2028, with the Victorian Government committing to starting works on the Hopkins Road crossing removal in 2023. (Moving Melton).

“Removing these level crossings will reduce congestion, improve safety and pave the way for more capacity on the train network. With no level crossings in the area, journeys will be faster and more reliable, and local roads will be safer.” (Victoria’s Big Build).

Read more about City of Melton Level Crossing Removal Works here.

To explore all level crossing removal projects, click here.

Potential Upgrades for Hopkins Road

The City of Melton are proposing upgrades for Hopkins Road in addition to the State Government’s level crossing removal works to reduce congestion and increase commuter safety.

“Hopkins Road is a critical north south connector for the west, providing access to employment precincts and connecting the Western Highway to the Princes Freeway. It is currently a rural-standard carriageway with unsealed shoulders, open drains and non-existent pedestrian facilities.” (Moving Melton).

With the rapidly growing population in the west expected to increase Hopkins Road usage from 27,000 to 40,000 vehicles a day by 2031, it is important the infrastructure is upgraded to meet demands. The proposed solution on the Moving Melton website is:

  • removal of the level crossing with grade separation near Greigs Road [road over rail treatment],
  • Hopkins Road duplication between the Western Highway and Boundary Road,
  • upgrade of the Boundary Road intersection with traffic lights,
  • new pedestrian and cycling path.

For more information and to stay up to date with the proposal for Hopkins Road upgrades, visit the Moving Melton website.

Future Mt Atkinson Train Station

The future Mt Atkinson train station, to be located moments from Olivia at the proposed Mt Atkinson Town Centre, will reduce road congestion (by an estimated 1,400 car trips a day), relieve pressure on other local stations, and help support local employment – construction of the new station will create 271 jobs for the local economy as well as improve access to existing and proposed employment
opportunities in the Western Corridor. (Moving Melton).

Further information on this and other local rail upgrades can be found on the Moving Melton Website.

Feature Park Olivia Estate Truganina

Olivia’s interactive and inclusive playground is now open

Olivia’s interactive and inclusive playground is now open

We’re excited to announce the 1.27-hectare interactive playground that has been under planning and development for a couple of years is now open!

Since development at Olivia began in 2019, we have had a team of people dedicated to designing and implementing this state-of-the-art playground, with traditional play equipment and interactive technology-based equipment for all ages and all abilities. The playground which is centrally located in the Olivia community is a place for young and old to meet and play. 

Whatever your age, isn’t it good to play?

We created this park to be inclusive of all ages and all abilities, so that people can come together and enjoy time out in the fresh air and sunshine and discover new styles of play enabled by modern technology. Olivia is the first development estate of its kind to have an interactive playground such as this, and we’re very proud we’ve been able to bring this to the residents of Olivia.

The park encourages:

1.    Multi-generational play – the whole family can play together; children, parents, and grandparents.

2.    Inclusivity – regardless of ability and capacity, anyone can access the equipment and play together in groups.

Here are some of the innovative games you’ll find there:

Sona: The Yalp Sona interactive play arch works intuitively. When you walk under the arch, it will ask what game you want to play. Different games can be selected, and several players can play simultaneously in a group. 

Memo: The Yalp Memo has a playing field with a set of seven interactive play pillars with a 360° LED touch screen. The Memo has mathematical and spelling games so that children are getting both mental and physical exercise benefits at the same time.

Oxygen Climber: The oxygen climber is excellent for kids who like to climb and scamper! It builds strength, coordination, balance, and agility. 

Rhodium 3-Way Rocker: For little ones, this rocker builds confidence in their ability to manage movement, make decisions, and develop balance.

The Tower: For children who like rabbit holes, slippery dips, and climbing things, they will thoroughly enjoy the tower experience.

Xspeed: The Xspeed allows four people to swing around the pole while moving up and down. It develops core muscle strength, postural control, kinaesthetic awareness, and balance. It also develops an understanding of speed, force, and directional movement.

Raise your family, upsize to your dream home and invest in your future

Since 2019, Olivia has become home to many families and individuals. There is a wonderful sense of community with everything you need for a good quality of life close-by and conveniently located. Early learning centres, schools for a growing family, and shopping centres are all within a few minutes’ drive. Melbourne’s CBD is only 28kms away. Three new government and non-government schools (primary and high schools) have been proposed at Mt Atkinson which is a five-minute drive from Olivia.

These are just some of the reasons to start something beautiful at Olivia today.
