Positive response to water playground proposal

By Kevin Kelly

Many families make the decision to move to real estate in Eaton because of the wide range of facilities the area has to offer – and these could soon be about to improve further.

The City of Bunbury has proposed building a new water playground in the region and asked the public's opinion on what they thought of the idea.

Results are in and they show an "overwhelmingly positive" response, so companies are now being asked to put forward expressions of interest for the project.

"We are now moving on to the next step so we can further progress the development of the playground," said mayor Gary Brennan.

"Council and city staff will continue to work closely with the community to ensure it is something the whole community can enjoy and utilise."

Throughout the consultation process, members of the local community were shown several pictures of play equipment before being asked to choose their top three.

Of those questioned, 30.7 per cent said they would prefer not to pay an entry charge, while 48.8 per cent would be happy to pay a gold coin fee to use the facility.

Other suggestions included having on site facilities such as shaded areas and changing rooms.
