It doesn’t matter whether your town or city has a population of 5,000,000 or 500 – every child has the right to play and develop their gross motor, decision-making and risk assessment skills. It shouldn’t matter where you live… Broken Hill, Brisbane, Broome, Ballarat, Birdsville, Blinman or Bothwell…
Kids need play in the same capacity that plants need sunlight, it’s their main source of growth. It allows them to test themselves, push their limits and discover things not only about themselves but about the world around them. The positive impact play has on kids cannot be understated, it’s a core part of their development.
Federation Council has recently invested heavily into the futures of their communities by working with Moduplay to design, manufacture & install 4 brand new playgrounds across their region. Being Australian made, the materials used are designed to withstand the long winters and scorching hot summers that residents deep in country NSW know all too well.
The 4 new playgrounds are:
- Rand Recreation Ground, Rand NSW
- Lowe Square, Howlong NSW
- Memorial Park, Howlong NSW
- RSL Park, Corowa
The first site, located in Rand 50 minutes from Albury, is now home to a fantastic new playground that will serve the community for years to come.
Howlong, located on the banks of the Murray River is now boasting two fantastic new community playground areas. The first, at Lowe Square is boasting a 25m Single SkyRider, and will prove popular all year round. The 2nd site is Memorial Park, Pearce Street, literally on the banks of the mighty Murray River.
This park has one of the most quintessential Australian settings you’ll find – surrounded by native eucalyptus trees, local bird life and now some new Moduplay equipment… it is safe to say that it doesn’t get much more Australian than that!
The final project is RSL Park, Corowa, and is the jewel in the crown for the Federation Council area, with over $100,000 being invested to help make this a destination play space. Check out the fetaure project page here: https://www.moduplay.com.au/projects/rsl-park/
Our mission is to bring play to every child across Australia. We appreciate our rural and regional councils that acknowledge the importance of play and we recognise and appreciate their investment into the future of our nation’s children.
