Play time soon

Eastern Reporter - - News -

Fam­i­lies liv­ing in the Town of Bassendean are ex­pected to have ac­cess to a new na­ture-based play­ground at Mary Cres­cent Re­serve play­ground in 2019.

AN age­ing play­ground at Mary Cres­cent Re­serve in Eden Hill will be re­vamped into a na­ture-based play­ground by Fe­bru­ary 2019.

At last month’s meet­ing, Bassendean Coun­cil voted unan­i­mously to grant land­scap­ing com­pany Phase3 Land­scape Con­struc­tion Pty Ltd the ten­der to sup­ply, in­stall and con­struct the play­ground.

In July, the coun­cil al­lo­cated $250,000 in cap­i­tal funds to­wards the project as part of the 2018-19 bud­get. While Phase3 was yet to de­velop de­sign plans for the district-wide play­ground, the in­stal­la­tion of play equip­ment was ex­pected to take about 12 weeks.

Mayor Re­nee McLen­nan said some equip­ment would be re­moved from the ex­ist­ing play­ground while some would re­main and be added. The bas­ket­ball back­board, hoop and swings are planned to stay.

Com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment direc­tor Graeme Hag­gart said the Town would hold a launch event in Fe­bru­ary next year.
