YANCHEP’S Harrison Coan was quick to head south to Jindalee to try out a $3.5 million playground and park that opened this month.
On September 13, Times photographer Martin Kennealey caught up with the four-year-old at the foreshore playground in Jindalee, which opened to the public the weekend before.
The Eden Beach estate developer Satterley Property Group will hold a grand opening from 8am to noon this Saturday, and seasonal launch of The Local Farmers’ Market.
Stallholders at the September 24 market will include bread vendor Grainaissance, fruit trader Askrigg Orchards, vegetable seller GMT and Bee Happy.
There will be roving superhero characters, inflatable amusements such as bungee trampoline, velcro fly wall, bouncy castle, superhero cape and mask making and free face painting from 9.30-11.30am.
Community development officer Lyndsey Stoney said she was excited to launch the park to the community.
“It’s been long awaited and we know that it will be such a popular place for families and kids to enjoy,” Ms Stoney said.
More than 400 people attended a soft opening of the park at the western end of Reflection Boulevard on September 11.
Senior development manager Grant Wilkins said the playground catered for children of all age groups.
“Slides, multi-level play cubes, climbing structures and a toddler play area with swings and a sand play area have been built within the playground, as well as custom-shade structures,” he said.
