War­ragul Mu­nic­i­pal Of­fices in Civic Place, War­ragul c.1969.

In the fore­ground are earth­works for the con­struc­tion of the Civic Park or­na­men­tal ponds.

In the back­ground is the orig­i­nal play­ground cre­ated util­is­ing con­crete pipes by War­ragul Apex Club.

The train, ser­pent (which many chil­dren be­lieved was a train car­riage) and slide sup­ports were all made of the hume pipes.

The train re­mains a fea­ture of the to­day’s play­ground. A new play­ground was opened on Oc­to­ber 19. It now has a new ju­nior and se­nior play unit, in­sect spring rock­ers, wheel­chair friendly carousal, hammock, three-bay swing set, spin­ner bowl and two tram­po­lines.

Pho­to­graph and in­for­ma­tion cour­tesy of the War­ragul and Dis­trict His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

If you have any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about this pho­to­graph, please con­tact The Gazette on 5623 5666 or editorial@war­rag­ul­gazette.com.au.
