PREMIER Colin Barnett today opened a $1.1 million facelift to a popular play park in the Hills.
The Shire of Mundaring hosted the Premier and other politicians at the Mundaring Community Sculpture Park launch, where Shire President David Lavell said the park was a huge drawcard for the area.
“We’ve heard of people travelling from all over Perth to see our upgraded park, which is a fantastic asset for our community,” he said.
“It provides a gateway to the nearby Mundaring Weir interpretation precinct and is a wonderful day out for the whole family.
“The playground also has many accessible features including swings, soft fall covering, paths and music equipment.”
Cr Lavell said the project had been many years in planning, with works started last year on the play space.
“New equipment, a boardwalk tunnel, swings and a flying fox have been installed, along with a very popular nature play area and an educational, interactive play installation in the form of an ornate crevice dragon,” he said.
The carpark was completed recently, along with picnic zones featuring new barbecues and picnic tables.
The project received funding and support from organisations including Lotterywest, Water Corporation, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Mundaring Arts Centre and the Federal Government.
