Project Update: Peninsula Lakes Playground

Equipment has been ordered by the Shire of Dardanup for the new playground at Peninsula Lakes in Eaton with plans to be ready for fun in late spring.

Construction including earthworks and installation of play equipment will commence as soon as wet winter weather has passed.

Stage 1 will include:

  • Custom high-quality ropes adventure course in circuit format, with unique elevated cubby feature and elements selected for maximum play value including a hammock swing, balancing ropes, rope ‘monkey bars’ and nets
  • Spinner – inclusive sensory feature with spinning motion function;
  • Rockers x 2
  • Formal edge comprising a two-course limestone block wall (straight with feature ‘turret’ sections of varying block heights and orientations), rock work and a feature hand formed concrete ‘beach’ edge plus sand for sensory play value.

In response to community feedback, smaller pieces of equipment more suited to younger children have been included. It is proposed to install accessible rubber paths through the playground in stage two of the park upgrade, which will allow greater access for people of all abilities.

Stay tuned for further updates as the project progresses…
