PERTH’S first all-abilities playground, named Livvi’s Place, opened in Brabham recently.

More than 700 people turned out to celebrate the official opening of the $1.5 million inclusive play space at the Whiteman Edge community on Mayfield Drive.

Developers Stockland funded the project and the Touched By Olivia Foundation oversaw the design.

It features accessible structures, sensory play spaces and equipment which allow for physical disabilities, vision, hearing and mobility impairments and autism spectrum disorders.
