BURDEKIN Shire Council has placed its order for Groper Creek’s new playground, as part of its 2022/23 Budget $95,000 allocation.
The playground has been expanded and the installation of the new equipment is anticipated to be completed in time for Easter 2023.
Features of the new playground include a three-bay swing set comprising basket swing, toddler swing and standard swing.
The Ixo Metal Multiplay Unit is designed with pre-teens in mind with the variety of testing elements giving it widespread, long-lasting appeal for junior users.
Perhaps the most exciting piece will be the Hip Hop Rotating See-Saw, which is suitable for kids of all ages and never before seen in the Burdekin.
Younger children gradually learn about the fun of speed on roundabouts as they gain self-confidence and test their sense of balance on a fun piece of equipment that combines rotating and swinging.
A Double Spring Perch is also new to the district with the spring ride enhancing a child’s sense of balance, helping them to coordinate their movements.
According to Council, the playground design has been carefully considered and is rounded out with a number of smaller pieces to ensure multiple people can enjoy this great new space all at once.
