THE $3.4 million regional playground in Bibra Lake has re-opened after being closed throughout May for repairs and upgrades.

Poles for new shade sails have be installed while the City of Cockburn also made repairs to Hobbit Hill and the talking rocks.

The playground now also includes Wi-Fi access, which Mayor Logan Howlett said would provide “the community with free, filtered access to the internet”.

Engineering and works services director Charles Sullivan thanked the community for its patience, saying it was crucial high traffic areas got the maintenance needed to ensure the safety and comfort of park users.

“The biggest changes that people will notice are to Hobbit Hill, the talking rocks and the weaving of rope through the fish trap climbing structures,” he said.

“Poles have been installed in readiness for shade sales to go up after winter.”

The repairs and upgrades cost the City about $160,000.
