PIARA Water children have been enjoying the brand new Stockland Newhaven robot-themed park, the first one of its kind in WA.

The $2.5 million park features a robot-themed cubby house, dual flying fox, basketball half-court, climbing structures and tunnel slides.

It is on the corner of Mason Road and Doryanthes Avenue.

Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton said the development of the park had been a community effort.

“Newhaven locals and youngsters from the Piara Waters Primary School provided us with details as to what the park should feature. The result is a unique, creative family-friendly outdoor space that allows kids of all ages to let their imaginations run wild,” he said.

Mr Dutton said a large number of trees had been retained through planning and consultation with the City of Armadale.
