BASSENDEAN families will have an opportunity to comment on a concept design for a nature-based playground at Sandy Beach Reserve.

The concept design will be refined in response to comments received from the community.

A forum will also be held on March 28 from 6pm to 8pm at the Bassendean Community Hall.

Bassendean Mayor Renée McLennan said with backyards decreasing in size, quality places were becoming increasingly important.

“Input from our community members is crucial to achieving a great outcome for this project and we encourage everyone who is interested to come along and contribute,” she said.

“Being the mother of two young children I know first hand the challenges that being a parent can present to participation.

“To help remove some of these barriers, our council recently decided to offer the parents of our town a free crèche service during public meetings such as this.

“It is hoped that the availability of the crèche will make it easier for parents of young children to be involved.”

Parents who want to take part in the forum and need childcare assistance can contact Wind In The Willows at willowsccc@gmail.com or phone 9279 3773 by March 23.

For information on the forum, contact Graeme Haggart on 9377 8016 or email ghaggart@bassendean.wa.gov.au
