PROPERTY developer Stockland will host a free party to celebrate the launch of the 1.83ha Jungle Park at Whiteman Edge in Brabham this Sunday.

The party, on the corner of Everglades Avenue and Gloucester Approach, runs from 11am to 3pm, and youngsters can try the park’s 7m enclosed climbing tower with tunnel slide and a top platform resembling a bird’s nest.

Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton encouraged families from Whiteman Edge and the surrounding areas to attend. Landscape architects from EPCAD designed the playground.

Mr Dutton said Jungle Park was the latest in several parks and open spaces in Whiteman Edge.

“The community’s innovative parks include the state’s first inclusive Livvi’s Playspace playground which opened in late 2015,” he said.

“The $1.7 million playground has become a drawcard for the region with its accessible structures, sensory playspaces and inclusive equipment which allows for physical disabilities, vision, hearing and mobility impairments and autism spectrum disorders.”
