The Hindmarsh Square Playspace (also known as Emo Park)was an innovative collaboration between artists Ryan Sims, Gerry Wedd with landscape architects Taylor Cullity Lethlean.

Using oversized objects (tap, hose, thong, fish bones) in an undulating landscape they have created an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ experience for the viewer.

The area is a popular place for city workers to relax during their lunch breaks.
