A new all-abilities playground at Walter Padbury Park in Thornlie is now open.

It is the latest of 10 all-abilities playgrounds being developed by the City of Gosnells to provide access to a range of play areas for all local young people.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said families with children with disability should not have to travel long distances to access suitable play equipment.

“The City is committed to creating a safe and inclusive community and our all-abilities playgrounds are giving local children access to play equipment close to home,” she said.

“One of the City’s priorities is to optimise the use of our recreation facilities and reserves to ensure members of our community have opportunities to participate in activities that promote physical and emotional wellbeing.

“The development of all-abilities playgrounds across our suburbs is helping to achieve this.”

The new all-abilities playground at Walter Padbury Park features an inclusive orbit, rectangular trampoline, unity swing, talk tubes and musical pipes alongside the existing playground equipment.

Two more all-abilities playgrounds are currently under construction at Mills Park in Beckenham and Bracadale Park in Canning Vale.
