Work is soon due to start on an adventure playground at Peninsula Lakes Park in Eaton after planning approval was received.

Dardanup shire president Mick Bennett said the community surrounding the park has waited patiently for playground equipment on the reserve.

“The park will predominantly be an interactive space and the inclusion of the proposed new facilities will improve the cultural, social and community environment,” he said.

“Additional landscapes improvement are planned for construction in coming financial years.

“That will include additional play and active recreational elements, plus ancillary landscape features.”

The playground will be funded by money that was paid to council by the Parkridge Group when a subdivision occurred opposite the reserve in 2010. A trust fund held the $150,000 for the future development of the reserve.

In June last year councillors resolved to allocate $100,000 to complete the first stage of the adventure park.

Collie-Preston MLA Mick Murray said he was excited to see the the development taking place after planning received the green light from the State Government.

“Having attractive public open spaces in incredibly important in a community, especially when there are many young families in the area,” he said.

“The families surrounding Peninsula Lakes Park will be able to enjoy a state-of-the-art adventure playground and other improvements.”
