A new playground has been installed including a play fort/treehouse, spring rocker, spinning seesaw, activity net and double swing along with a new shelter and seating.
City Lifestyle Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski said many of the upgrades to parks were on top of works done to clean, repair and rehabilitate parks impacted by floods.
“Parks are vitally important to the outdoor lifestyle, many of our residents and families love and enjoy,” Cr Koranski said.
“A lot of research and planning goes into the design of new and upgraded additions to our parks and the benefit of that work comes when we see so many people enjoying these wonderful facilities.”
While the works are officially finished, there will be some extra turf installed in the back left corner to enable pram access to the park from the Cornubia Forest Park walkway in the coming week.
Local Councillor for the division, Miriam Stemp, said it is great to see Collie Park has re-opened to the community.
“The park was due for replacement through Council’s Parks Asset Replacement Program, with an additional climber funded through the Division 10 Local Infrastructure Program included in the upgrade, in response to requests for a piece of equipment for older children,” said Cr Stemp.
“The park includes a treehouse multi-play system, koala spring rocker, spinning seesaw, double swing, 5m activity net, a new water bubbler, shelter, and seating.
“I have already been sent photos of kids playing in the park and hope it will be enjoyed by the local community for many years to come.”
