PINJARRA already boasts one of the best and most colourful playgrounds around but now Cantwell Park is set to be even better.

Stage three of the park will go ahead next year, courtesy of a $150,000 grant from LotteryWest.

Murray MLA Murray Cowper presented the cheque to Murray shire president Marie Reid and chief executive Dean Unsworth at the park.

Stage three will include a climbing frame, double cableway flying fox, a giant bird’s nest swing, adult exercise equipment, a boardwalk and extra pathways.

The new equipment will enable physical activity that challenges the user’s sense of balance and helps build strength and endurance.

Tenders open soon and the park is expected to be completed mid-year.

The current park is for up to 12-year-olds but with the new features it will also be available for adults.

Mr Cowper commended the council for being stalwarts of the community with park additions on the way and a new bridge for Coolup.

He also presented a second cheque to Pinjarra Rotary Club president Ian Cullen for $11,528 for signage on the Pinjarra Heritage Trail that runs along the river in the town centre.
