Lookout Park sits beside Graceful Boulevard in the Alkimos Beach Estate and project director Martin Gaedke said the 1966sq m park had a wide view of the ocean.

‘The main features of Lookout Park include a toddler playground, a pirate ship with a balancing/spring loaded base to wobble like it’s in the ocean, treasure chests, action elements such as swings, climbing nets and slides, and a hollow shelter to take in the views,’ Mr Gaedke said.

‘The final play equipment will go in mid-December.

‘The sand pit at Lookout Park has used recycled limestone site rocks in the sand, suggestive of the captain’s challenge to avoid a shipwreck.

‘If the boat sinks there is a hammock to relax in until rescued.’ The $300,000 park was designed by AECOM and built by LD Total, and another public open space, Escarpment Park is expected to open this month.
