Playground Closed Temporarily for Upgrade

The Shire of Katanning started work on the renovation and rejuvenation of its iconic All Ages Playground at the end of 2018. The initiative is part of the Katanning Heritage Centre Project funded by the Department of Regional Development, Lotterywest and the Shire of Katanning. Although the redevelopment is set to significantly change the landscape of the All Ages Playground into a premier Welcome Precinct at the town’s main entrance, many parts of the playground will still be instantly recognisable.

The development of the precinct will be undertaken in three parts. Work on part one, commencing upon engagement of the contractor will include the All Ages Playground and children’s playground. Part two works will include the enhancement of the Skate Park and Lion’s Park, marked to occur after Australia Day 2019. Part three works, predominantly carparking, will immediately follow the completion of part two works. The All Ages Playground is expected to be completed by in Spring 2019.

With the rise in popularity of destination playgrounds and so too the willingness of families to day-trip or spend the weekend, the Welcome Precinct Project will enhance Katanning’s visitor experience and support the town’s tourism sector as a key area for future economic development. The improvements the project will bring to local amenity and recreation facilities will contribute to the town’s ability to attract and retain residents.
