Walk to school a whale of a time

North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

LAND­SCAP­ING works in Two Rocks in­clude an ar­bour of whale­bone arches and a marine-themed play­ground, due to open in De­cem­ber.

At­lantis Beach Bap­tist Col­lege prin­ci­pal Gary Har­ris, pic­tured with stu­dents Khenya Moore (7), Cait­lyn Don­ald­son (7) and Tyler Pelser (7), has wel­comed the de­vel­oper-funded en­try state­ment to the school.

CON­STRUC­TION has started on a marine-themed play­ground in Two Rocks, which is sched­uled to open by Christ­mas.

The City of Wan­neroo re­cently ap­proved plans for the Con­stel­la­tion Park play­ground in At­lantis Beach Es­tate.

The park’s fo­cal point will be an un­der­wa­ter marine theme play­ground with swings, climb­ing frames and cub­by­houses, plus a pic­nic area with a per­gola and bar­be­cue area.

“It will be a ma­jor cen­tral park­land of more than 22,000sq m and the first stage of this park will cover around 7500sq m,” project di­rec­tor Jar­rod Ren­dell said.

“Con­stel­la­tion Park has been de­signed to cater for a full range of chil­dren from tod­dlers to early teenagers as the play­ground in­cludes rope climb­ing frames, swings and cub­by­houses with de­signs fo­cused on sea an­i­mals. We’ll also be plant­ing more than 24 large ma­ture trees.”

Mr Ren­dell said more than 65 per cent of lots in that stage had been sold and con­struc­tion had started on about 20 homes.

He said other in­fra­struc­ture works in the sub­urb in­cluded a med­i­cal cen­tre and child­care cen­tre that were ex­pected to open in 2018.
