An anonymous donation of $50,000 towards the Colin Spragg Adventure Playground has induced Dardanup Shire Council to endorse a $200,000 upgrade for the site.

Councillors passed the proposal at last month’s council meeting.

Proposed upgrades for the playground include the installation of a flying fox and an additional rubber surface.

There will also be a shelter installed above the barbecues adjacent to the playground and shade sails installed above the playground.

Works will not proceed until grant funding has been secured by the council.

A $2000 donation from the Lions Club of Eaton would be used to cover the cost of the barbecue shelter while $65,700 in funds remaining from the Eaton Foreshore and Boat Ramp Facility Master Plan will also be used.
