Cockburn’s Bibra Lake Regional Playground finished behind City of Kwinana’s Adventure Playground in the race for Parks and Leisure Australia’s WA Playspace award for projects over $500,000.

The award was one of three won by Kwinana’s Calista-based park, with its haul including the Park of the Year title.

It was not all bad news for Cockburn, with its $3.4 million park on Progress Drive given a high commendation.

WA award winners go on to represent the state at the national awards in December.
