An adventure tower, moulded tunnel, inclusive inground trampoline and all abilities spinner will be the next features installed at Boreham Park before the new playground opens to the public in May.
Divisional representative Cr John Learmonth said construction at the popular area was well underway with community excitement growing about the fantastic features of the park.
“Just some of the great features include an eight metre high adventure tower with a rope bridge, climbing elements, a large tube slide and a zero depth water play area,” he said.
“It is shaping up to be the perfect place for young adventurers to explore and play and I know that many in our local community are thrilled with what is to come.”
All ability play equipment featured in new playground
Cr Learmonth said the new playground would provide something fun for children of all abilities.
“An amazing inclusive inground trampoline is just one of the many pieces of play equipment that will be provided for all abilities,” he said.
“The area will also include a custom double swing and all abilities spinner.”
Cr Learmonth said the playground had been built by local company Willplay, which is working with principal contractor Greenwood Landscape Management, after the area was highlighted for an upgrade due to feedback from the community.
“Boreham Park was selected to be upgraded due to the popularity of the existing playground and its location in regards to the surrounding residential population,” he said.
“As part of Council's Parks and Open Space Strategy 2019 – 2026, the area was highlighted by the community as in need of improvements.
“There have been many local businesses involved in the creation and build of the new playground, including Willplay who have supplied and installed all of the fantastic new equipment.”
Willplay are made up of a passionate team with a combined 22 years of experience in the design and manufacture of playground and recreational equipment.
The Boreham Park playground upgrade is a joint initiative of the Bundaberg Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
The area is expected to be open to the public at the end of May, weather permitting.
