Joondalup Weekender - - News -

MORE than 1000 peo­ple cel­e­brated Parks Week 2018 at the open­ing of a $2 mil­lion park in Mindarie.

The play­ground fea­tures an 8m-tall play tower, gi­ant sand­pit, in-ground tram­po­lines, climb­ing wall and fixed sun loungers.

The park and play­ground at the west­ern end of Avi­a­tor Boule­vard in Catalina Beach es­tate of­fi­cially opened on March 10, with a DJ and food trucks adding to the at­mos­phere.

Free en­ter­tain­ment in­cluded a play­ground trea­sure hunt, or­gan­ised sports, bouncy cas­tle and lawn games.

Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts, Burns Beach MLA Mark Folkard, Ta­mala Park Re­gional Coun­cil chair­man Gio­vanni Ital­iano and Sat­ter­ley chief ex­ec­u­tive Nigel Sat­ter­ley cut the rib­bon.

There were also in­ter­ac­tive ex­hibits and dis­plays from 10 com­mu­nity groups and busi­nesses, in­clud­ing tast­ings of the lat­est beers on tap at The Ma­rina, Mindarie.

The Parks Week ini­tia­tive ran from March 10 to 17, cel­e­brat­ing the role parks play in creat­ing live­able cities and thriv­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

“From our 38 years of de­vel­op­ment ex­pe­ri­ence in WA we know that parks are the fo­cal point of any com­mu­nity,” Mr Sat­ter­ley said.

“That’s why we strive to cre­ate the best green and play spa­ces in our com­mu­ni­ties.

“This new­est edi­tion at Catalina Beach is no ex­cep­tion and it’s been won­der­ful be­ing here to­day to see it be­ing en­joyed by peo­ple of all ages.”

Hun­dreds of peo­ple had plenty of fun at the new $2 mil­lion park at Catalina Beach es­tate.
