EAST Cannington’s growing population can enjoy facilities in the newly-created Dabchick Park after it was officially opened recently.

The park on Dabchick Close features netball hoops, outdoor exercise equipment, a reflexology path and large grassed area.

A City spokesman said more than 100 native trees and 7000 shrubs were planted in the park to provide shade and natural habitat for animals.

Mayor Paul Ng said Dabchick Park was part of a natural corridor linking different places, such as to the Bush Forever sites in Queens Park Regional Open Space.

“The City is committed to connecting communities through communal neighbourhood spaces like Dabchick Park,” Mr Ng said.

“Family and friends can enjoy the barbecue area and outdoor gym equipment, as well as the exciting new feature of a reflexology path, which is a first for the City of Canning.”
