Barrels of fun for kids
WHAT’S needed in a park to make it fun? That’s the question for Gayndah C&K Kindergarten director Marni Telford, who dreams of kids exploring nature in a new playground.
The dream is possible with $31,000 in funding from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
“The idea in outdoor education is to play in natural spaces,” she said. “We’re hoping to do a nature area up the back where the kids can ride their tricycles, and create lots of different spaces for the kids to explore.”
An upgrade on the existing wooden fort and sandpit are on the list, as well as options like “living arches” (plants growing over a frame).
Ms Telford hopes work will begin during the September holidays.
