Park pulls in ac­co­lades at year’s Leisure Awards event

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News -

One of Kwinana’s new­est and most well loved at­trac­tions re­cently re­ceived high praise at the 2017 Parks and Leisure Aus­tralia Awards of Ex­cel­lence pre­sen­ta­tions.

Kwinana Ad­ven­ture Park was named Park of the Year, Com­mu­nity Pro­gram of the Year, and Playspace of the Year.

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the lo­cal gov­ern­ment was im­mensely proud to be home to the State’s best park.

“Ad­ven­ture Park is un­doubt­edly the most pop­u­lar fam­ily des­ti­na­tion in Kwinana, and it seems the rest of WA agrees,” she said.

“We have worked hard over the past sev­eral years to re­ally put Kwinana ‘on the map’, cre­ate some­thing unique to our City and win­ning th­ese awards is yet an­other en­cour­ag­ing mark of suc­cess. Our $5.2 mil­lion Ad­ven­ture Park has be­come a ma­jor draw­card for Kwinana, at­tract­ing peo­ple from far and wide to ex­pe­ri­ence all that our won­der­ful City has to of­fer.”

The park was recog­nised in the awards for its cul­tural seat­ing and tim­ber posts — a pro­ject worked on by lo­cal Abo­rig­i­nal youth as well as its draw­card at­trac­tions such as a splash pad, tree maze and sand fac­tory.
