TOILET facilities at Landsdale’s Warradale Park will become more accessible soon.

City of Wanneroo has allocated $40,000 and Cowan MHR Anne Aly has sourced $20,000 through the Stronger Communities Program to build a universal access toilet at the nature play area, built to honour toddler Sam Trott.

The City’s community and place director Debbie Terelinck said toilet construction would start about May and should finish in July.

The nature play area opened in November 2016 and several families have contacted Dr Aly since then regarding the need for amenities for young children.

“This beautiful park was opened in memory of Sam Trott, and it’s been very touching to see so many local families enjoy it and have a great time together,” she said.

“I hope this upgrade makes a much loved and treasured local playground even better.”

Grandmother Dawn Parker spoke to one of the politician’s volunteers about the need for amenities last July.

“It will be such a wonderful thing for lots of families,” Ms Parker said.

“We all know how it is with kids…things happen quickly and having a toilet there will take the worry out of spending time at the park.

“It’ll mean the kids can enjoy this beautiful playground for longer.”

The Stronger Communities Program provides grants, between $5000 and $20,000, to not-for-profit organisations and local governments for small capital works projects.

The Cowan community consultative committee has approved 10 projects in this round of the program, with $141,075 contributed to works in the local community.
