The hybrid playground combines a conventional playground with the natural environment.

Canning Commissioner Linton Reynolds said the Bannister Creek Catchment area playground created innovative and fun learning opportunities for children.

‘Hybrid playgrounds are a wonderful new direction in children’s outdoor activities,’ Mr Reynolds said.

‘It gives kids the opportunity to play in a more natural environment while using equipment that is designed to assist in the development of their co-ordination and motor skills.’

Turtles were incorporated into the playground design and equipment because oblong turtles were native to the area.
