Build­ing to start on first stage of play­ground

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

SUN­DAY was all sun­shine and laugh­ter at the Lo­gan’s Ad­ven­ture Play­ground Fam­ily Fun Day in Can­non­vale with stage one of the play­ground set to be­gin con­struc­tion early next month.

Up to 200 par­ents, chil­dren, grand­par­ents and their dogs came along for a sausage siz­zle, en­joyed the live mu­sic and took ad­van­tage of the free en­ter­tain­ment.

The day fea­tured the turn­ing of the sod by Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Jen­nifer Whit­ney and event or­gan­iser Kel­lie Chart to mark an ex­cit­ing new chap­ter in the Whit­sun­days.

Af­ter al­most three years of plan­ning, con­struc­tion on stage one of Lo­gan’s Ad­ven­ture Play­ground will be­gin in the first weeks of Septem­ber which will in­clude earth­works pro­vided by coun­cil, some land­scap­ing, the front fence and one piece of equip­ment.

The fam­ily fun day had an in­cred­i­ble dis­play of com­mu­nity sup­port with Whit­sun­day PCYC, Men’s Shed, Whit­sun­day Coast Scout Group and the Fat Frog Beach Cafe tak­ing part or mak­ing a do­na­tion.

Fat Frog Beach Cafe in Can­non­vale do­nated a $1 per cof­fee sold on the Sun­day, rais­ing a to­tal of $147.

While cel­e­brat­ing the com­mence­ment of stage one, the day was also a fundraiser for stage two.

A to­tal of $3788 was raised with an ad­di­tional $2500 to be col­lected from fence pick­ets sold on the day.

Ms Chart said the play­ground was all about the com­mu­nity com­ing to­gether to make it hap­pen and has no doubt that future stages will only be big­ger and bet­ter. “I’m ex­tremely happy the day was such a suc­cess, the more money we raise means stage two will be big­ger and in­clude more equip­ment,” she said.

An ‘80s themed fundraiser for stage two of Lo­gan’s Ad­ven­ture Play­ground will be held on Oc­to­ber 3 at An­chor Bar in the Whit­sun­day Ter­races.
