The Shire has recently engaged with a company to conduct safety audits of all Shire playgrounds as part of our scheduled playground safety audits. These audits ensure play equipment have the highest level of safety. More than 100 pieces of play equipment have been inspected and three of these no longer meet the required safety standards. The track ride at the Lions Park, a slide at the Arthur Street Park and a slide at the Butler Street Park have been scheduled for removal in the coming weeks.
The new playground at the Greater Sports Ground is almost complete. We are awaiting some finer weather before we can make the final touches and then the playground will be opened.
