THE third and final stage of the redevelopment of Pinjarra’s popular Cantwell Park play space is finished and ready for use.

Project sponsors and Murray-Wellington MLA Murray Cowper attended the official opening.

Shire president Maree Reid said the council had been able to realise its vision of a play space integral to the Pinjarra CBD revitalisation project.

With the addition of apparatus including rope-net climbing activities, an adult fitness area, a giant nest swing and flying fox, stage three works have broadened the appeal of the park from toddlers through to adults.

The Cantwell Park play space redevelopment also forms part of the Murray River Foreshore Redevelopment plan expected to start next year, pending funding support from the State Government.

The council has allocated a further $400,000 as part of its 2016/17 budget for the construction of a new bore at Cantwell Park.

Due to the failing quality of water from the Murray River to service Cantwell Park and Edenvale, there is an urgent need to establish a quality water source for existing grassed areas.

The new bore will service the Pinjarra Foreshore, parks, the town centre and Edenvale and work is expected to start in April.
