Marion Mayor Kris Hanna will unveil a plaque to mark the upgrade where families can enjoy an exciting range of new facilities.

There will also be a free 30-minute session on how to build a “bee hotel” out of bamboo. This will show people how to provide a place for native bees to live and breed, improving the health of plants.

A free morning tea will be provided.

What work has been done?

Council has invested $360,629 in this innovative playground based on the theme of bees. Children will enjoy playing in a “beehive” structure with a tunnel slide and junior slide. There is a climbing wall, monkey bars, swings, logs to step and balance on, and a barbecue.

A small “bee hotel” has been installed at the reserve to encourage native bees to stay and pollinate the plants, including new fruit trees.

Other equipment includes:

  • A wheelchair accessible spinner
  • Bee sculptures and graphic panels
  • Play table with bee game
  • “Honey shop” to encourage imagination play
  • Mini soccer goal
  • Cricket stumps
  • Shade sails

Stay Covid safe

The opening is being arranged in accordance with COVID-safe practices.

Please follow the latest government health guidelines, including physical distancing and appropriate hygiene.

Hand sanitiser will be available.

Please do not attend if you are unwell.
