The new nature playground on Bellingham Parade is specifically designed to encourage interactive, creative play and for children to get their hands dirty.

Designed in consultation with Nature Play WA, the new playground and surrounding parklands feature retained natural bushland, a grassed kick-about area for ball sports or exercise classes, footpaths, barbecues and picnic tables.

The event was also the official launch of a new initiative – Go Wild In Wellard – a series of 10 nature-inspired activities designed to challenge children of all ages and get them playing creatively in the great outdoor spaces around Wellard.
