Families are set to benefit after Wanneroo Council awarded tenders for the provision of playground works in 24 local parks and open spaces.

The parks will soon receive a variety of upgrades, including new playground equipment, softfall areas and the installation of shade sail structures.

Reinvigorating parks and open spaces provides opportunities to foster and maintain an active lifestyle and a host of other benefits for local residents, especially the young families who make up over 40 per cent of households in the City of Wanneroo.

The tender for the works was advertised on 9 April 2022 and closed on 24 May 2022. Submissions were evaluated against a range of criteria including sustainability, access and inclusion, and demonstrated experience.

The contracts for the works have been awarded by tender to Active Discovery, Forpark, Miracle, Playmaster, Perth Playground & Rubber, and Perth Better Homes and Supreme Shade.

The City has budgeted $1.879 million for the project, with construction to take place over the next 12 months.
