Eaton playground feedback sought

Kate FieldingSouth Western Times

Dardanup Shire Council has opened a review into the proposed Glen Huon Playground design in response to feedback on social media.

While the design already includes accessible features, the council is encouraging the community to comment on how it could be further improved to enhance access for children with disabilities.

The council was this month presented with a $240,000 Lotterywest grant for the highly-anticipated playground.

Engineering & development services director Luke Botica said the aim of the project had been to provide the community with a new playground equal to the standard of the existing one, including considerable work to provide a modern facility that was inclusive and accessible.

“But that doesn’t mean that more can’t be done and now the community has brought the issue of accessibility to our attention,” Mr Botica said.
