CITY of Swan will install a pop-up playground in Bullsbrook, which will be available for use over the next two months.

Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said non-traditional playgrounds contributed to the wellbeing and development of young community members.

“Unstructured play has been proven to help develop curiosity, confidence, imagination and problem solving skills in children,” he said.

“The city provides simple, every day materials including tyres, logs, cable drums and planks – nearly all of which have been recycled – to create unconventional and freeform play spaces in our parks and reserves.

“These spaces are designed to encourage kids to be experimental with things they might not normally interact with, while gradually allowing them to build resilience by introducing some risk.”

The pop-up playground will be in Bullsbrook until June 26.
