City gets top play space
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.
