Native animals, reptiles and birds of prey will be among the stars of the show when our new $1.4M playground at Kingsford officially opens on 8th May.
The Go Wild! opening celebrations will also be the first chance for kids to test out the hanging net, water play, tube slides and climbing cubes in the nature-inspired play space.
Families can learn about the importance of bees and the wonder of native bush food, take part in sack races, and enjoy face painting and a performance by the Bungles.
There’s also the opportunity to support the fundraising efforts of the Bullsbrook Scouts and Community Garden by purchasing one of the tasty lunch options available on the day.
Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Darling Scarp, the new playground is just one element of an 8,200sqm nature-inspired community parkland at Kingsford.
It connects down to the Ki-it Monger Brook, which meanders through the estate, offering beautiful natural walking trails under the tree canopies.
“We are confident our new community play spaces will feed the family’s appetite for fun and fresh air,” says Adam Shephard, Managing Director of Okeland Communities.
Balancing screen time and outdoor play has become a modern challenge for many parents, with studies confirming that spending “green time” out in nature is associated with positive mental health outcomes.
