Morning of fun

Shire President David Lavell said the community looked forward to using the area once again.

“Children will be able to enjoy a range of new equipment and a nature play area,” he said.

“One of the key attractions is the ornate crevice dragon in the sandpit, where children can dig for her eggs and insects.”

Other highlights of the play space are a boardwalk tunnel and rocks to climb.

“With ramps, soft fall and many accessible equipment pieces, this is an inclusive playground for the whole community,” Cr Lavell said.

The playground is a feature of a $1.06 million redevelopment of the park, which Cr Lavell said was on time and on budget.

“This is a significant redevelopment which still has many stages before it is fully completed,” he said.

Work will soon begin on the picnic zone to provide new shelters, barbecues and re-alignment of Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.

Other events on the same day nearby are the Mundaring Rotary Markets, 9am to 2pm, #Ride2Market and a world series cycling qualifying race.

The Shire worked with Mundaring Arts Centre on many elements of the park, with the redevelopment supported by Lotterywest and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
