New community-funded nature playground opens in Kalbarri
Kalbarri has yet another new nature playground, this time at Kalbarri District High School.
The playground was finished late last month after more than three years of fundraising by the school’s P&C, and contributions from Kalbarri mums, dads, fishermen, residents, organisations and businesses.
The team helped playground developers NatureBased Play to establish the playground, which includes rope bridges, tree branches to climb on, a running “creek”, stones and trees.
They used mostly natural materials from the local landscape to create a space for students and teachers.
Kalbarri P&C president Rachael Clancy said she was pleased to see the community pull together for the good of the kids.
“It was amazing to see everyone out there, shovels in hand, working together to bring this long-held dream to fruition,” she said.
“We were blown away by the support and the feel-good factor of coming together as a community.”
Meanwhile, Kalbarri Development Association opened the other new nature playground in Grey Street near the jetty on Thursday last week.
