A THREE-YEAR effort to create a nature play space at Karrinyup Primary School is complete.

The school P&C came up with the concept plan more than three years ago and enlisted the help of dedicated teachers and parents, including landscape designer Dan Adams, to realise the vision.

It relied on donations, government grants and fundraisers to build the $100,000 space and volunteers have worked to create the playground since the start of the year.

The play space comprises three zones, with the third living stream zone marking completion of the project.

Highlights include a stream, bridges, tunnels, balancing logs, slides, climbing structures and native plants.
