CHILDREN will have a new fun spot in central Warrnambool, with two play areas being built on Swan Reserve at a cost of $320,000.
One will be for City Kindergarten pupils and the other open for the general public.
Designers have included a large basket swing as one of the features and paths will allow easy access for prams, wheelchairs and people with limited mobility.
Warrnambool City Council recreation and culture manager Russell Lineham said the design was developed after consultation with parents, children and kindergarten teachers.
“The playground will be fenced to enable a safe and secure environment for children to play,” he said. “Guidance on the design and construction also came from the council’s rural access team.
“The state government has provided $200,000 in funding and the city council $120,000.
“It is also being supported by Warrnambool Central Rotary Club and Friends of Swan Reserve.”
The playgrounds will have acknowledgement of indigenous heritage, associated with the site bounded by Raglan Parade, Kepler Street and Spence Street.
