Waratah-Wynyard Council in partnership with local charitable organisation The Fairy Godmothers will create a destination playground at Somerset’s ANZAC Park that will realise the vision for a playground that is fun, inclusive and accessible for everyone.

Creating a destination accessible playground – designed to offer the largest range of activities and sensory play experiences in a custom-designed setting for people of all ages and abilities – is one of the key recommendations of Waratah-Wynyard Council’s Open Space, Sport and Recreation Plan (OSSR) 2017-2027 and Waratah-Wynyard’s Destination Action Plan.

“We want to create a safe, fun and inclusive space that caters for all and meets changing community expectations for outdoor play areas,” Waratah-Wynyard Mayor Robby Walsh said.

“Together with developments along the Wynyard Waterfront and future Coastal Pathway project, Waratah-Wynyard Council is planning and creating modern and vibrant public spaces that encourage active, healthy communities.”

Further information and concept designs can be viewed by the public on Council’s website www.warwyn.tas.gov.au/have-your-say/anzacpark/ [1]
Waratah-Wynyard Council welcomes public input into the project via the Feedback Form on the ANZAC Park all-abilities playground project page.

The $2.55-million-dollar staged project has secured $1.365 million from the Federal Government’s Community Development Grants Programme and a further $635,000 has been allocated by Council.
