WORKS at Mundaring Community Sculpture Park are steaming ahead, with the play zone due to open in March.

Shire President David Lavell said the $1.06 million project would attract locals and visitors alike.

“The park will have great new equipment, a tunnel and boardwalk bridge,” Cr Lavell said.

“There will be a nature play element, a large wooden ornate crevice dragon to climb on and wooden insects to find in the sandpit.”

Other features of the project include new seating, footpaths and a low fence on the northern side of the Park near Jacoby Street.

Cr Lavell said in coming weeks the footpaths would be marked out, playground equipment installed and subsoil drainage completed.

“Works will cease over the holiday period and begin again in early January,” he said.

The Mundaring Community Sculpture Park project is one of four major infrastructure works planned for 2015-17.

The others include Boya Community Hub, Mundaring Indoor Recreation Facility and a social room at Elsie Austin Oval in Mt Helena.
