New community play space for the Inverleigh Community11/03/2020
Children and families around Inverleigh are enjoying a new multi-age community play space in an ideal spot right in the heart of town.
First opening in December last year, the fully accessible community play space has been a popular recreation site for locals and tourists visiting the town since it was completed.
The timing was ideal for the town in the Grampians region, with the busy crowds over the summer months taking full advantage of the safe and accessible play space.
Located near the Barwon and Leigh Rivers, the community play space is positioned in an ideal location for those in and around Inverleigh, within proximity to the Hamilton Highway and easy walking distance to local shops and other public amenities.
The play space, funding through the Victorian Government’s Pick My Project initiative, is equipped with a large multi-skill unit with slides, a flying fox, ladders and a rock-climbing wall to keep kids active and engaged.
Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes said; “the community play space provides children across Inverleigh and the surrounding area with an ideal spot to stay active while enjoying the outdoors.”
Pick My Project is a participatory budgeting initiative from the Victorian Government, with the public having been encouraged to vote on projects they would like to have seen introduced in their community.
The Inverleigh Community Play Space project is one of 14 successful projects from the Pick My Project initiative in the Central Highlands region which incorporates Inverleigh.
