Snapshot of the past
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.
