Plans well underway for second stage of playground
LOGAN’S Adventure Playground project co-ordinator Kellie Chart can feel the excitement in the air.
Now that Stage 1 of the playground is complete, with the children of the Whitsundays having responded magnificently to the flying fox, the committee really wants to push for the construction of Stage 2.
The plans are to build a fort-like structure at the playground site and the goal is to have it started by June this year.
“We’ve had lots of amazing feedback since the flying fox has opened – lots of small businesses want to get involved to make Stage 2 happen a lot quicker,” Ms Chart said.
Just this week Seabreeze Tourist Park donated $843 from sausage sizzles they held over Christmas.
In preparation for Stage 2, Logan’s Adventure Playground has lots of upcoming events and fundraisers in store.
Business posts for the playground are now on sale at $300 each.
The post is routed with the business name to make up front fence along with the hundreds of family pickets sold and there are only 29 left. They will also bring back the AmateurChef series after raising more than $6000 in 2013.
The idea is that people put on their own event at home with their own friends where they can charge a set amount or ask for donations.
“Last year we had everything from mums and bubs picnics, to pizza parlours to fancy sit down dinners,” Ms Chart said.
To top it all off, the pop-up restaurant that raises the most money each month will win dinner for two at Peppers.
Logan’s Adventure Playground will also host a Sportsman Dinner on May 23 at the Reef Gateway Hotel with special guest NRL great Mark Geyer.
