BEN­NETT Springs fam­i­lies will have ac­cess to a play space where world-class tech­nol­ogy meets Olympic-in­spired sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties early next year.

Mir­vac’s Pe­ga­sus Park is in Iluma Private Es­tate and fea­tures world-best so­lar­pow­ered smart benches equipped with WiFi ac­cess, wire­less de­vice charges and two USB con­nec­tors, play­ground equip­ment and fit­ness nodes to cater for ath­let­ics, cricket and bas­ket­ball.

Swan chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Fo­ley said the City had worked with Mir­vac since the out­set of the project.

“Our Ben­nett Springs com­mu­nity and the wider com­mu­nity are for­tu­nate to be in such close prox­im­ity to a park that has been de­signed for use by the whole com­mu­nity, no mat­ter their age or abil­ity,” he said.

Mir­vac de­vel­op­ment direc­tor WA Paige Walker said the park’s cre­ation stemmed in part from dis­cus­sions with the Youth Affairs Council of WA.

“The de­sign al­lows kids to ‘choose their own ad­ven­ture’, with an open path net­work that links all com­po­nents of the park to­gether,” she said.
