- A new Kwinana Adventure Park was opened at a community event today
- The $5.2 million project funded by the Coalition Government and the City of Kwinana
- The park contains five hectares of all-abilities play equipment offering members of the family an adventurous, safe experience.
Kwinana friends and families gathered today for a free community event to celebrate the official opening of the Kwinana Adventure Park in Perth.
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Coalition was proud to help deliver the park.
“This new space includes sensory and musical play equipment, a sand pit, splash pad water play areas and a tree maze,” Minister Nash said.
“The park also has ‘soft-fall’ under surfacing to ensure a safe playing environment for everyone.
“I aim to build the kinds of regional communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and community facilities like this are a big part of that.”
Senator for Western Australia Michaelia Cash said, “as promised during the election, the Coalition Government is committed to projects that have a longer term positive impact on the social and economic infrastructure of communities”.
“This project has delivered accessible, friendly and inclusive play environment for people of all ages and abilities, and will be very well received by the Kwinana community,” Ms Cash said.
“The park will accommodate the annual Kwinana Festival and informal sports. The playground also has been designed to incorporate a hireable space for children's parties with access to dedicated gazebo with full facilities.”
Mayor of City of Kwinana Carol Adams said the Adventure Park will be a major drawcard for Kwinana.
“No other playground in the state offers as many varied play opportunities and this level of accessibility and inclusion in one free-entry facility. Families from outside Kwinana will travel to spend the day here, and local families will be proud to have the amazing Adventure Park in their backyard.” Cr Adams said.
The Kwinana Adventure Park was funded by the Coalition Government contributing $2 million and the City of Kwinana investing $3.2 million.
