SHADE sails have been installed at Salitage Park in Pearsall using $30,000 from the State Government.

City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts welcomed the funding, which enabled the early installation of the shade sails.

“The City is a strong advocate for outside play and the many health benefits it delivers,” she said.

“There are many families residing in the area and I know the playground and shade sails will be well used.”

Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton welcomed completion of the project, which was one of her ‘local projects, local jobs’ election promises.

“I am thrilled that the $30,000 funding that was promised has been provided to the City of Wanneroo which has allowed them to proceed with installation,” she said.

“With the hot weather well and truly here, the installation of the sails is timely”.

The installation complements the City’s shade sails program to retrofit public playgrounds with shade sails at a rate of one per ward, per year.

The program will install shade sails at Ashdale Park in Darch, Hainsworth Park in Girrawheen, Hocking’s Greenfield Park and Fred Stubbs Park in Quinns Rocks during the 2017-18 financial year.
