The Shire of Manjimup constructed the $1.14 million playground after receiving funding through the Royalities for Regions SuperTown initiative and Lotterywest.
The playground has been designed to be used by children of all ages with varying levels of ability. The equipment features custom made structures such as a large climbing net, 40m double cable flying fox, water play, cubbies, slides, rides and sculptures of our local animals. There is also outdoor gym equipment, barbecues and picnic spots, so families can enjoy a complete recreational experience.
The Manjimup Timber and Heritage Park is open seven days, from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, April – September and 9.00 am to 8.00 pm, October – March. Entry is free.
Shire President, Wade De Campo said, “It is exciting to see the end product of Manjimup’s new, one of a kind adventure playground. Thank you to all the staff, contractors and funding provides for the hard work that has gone into completing this fantastic new play area, which children of all ages can enjoy for many years to come.”
An official opening event will be held in October 2013.
