Play space opens at Three Paddocks Park, Wellington Point

THREE Paddocks Park at Wellington Point has had an upgrade, receiving new play equipment for children of all ages.

Mayor Karen Williams said the park was one of a number across the Redlands that had recently been transformed or were scheduled for work.

“Council has set aside more than $4.1 million for renewing playgrounds, parks and sports fields across the Redlands this year alone,” Cr Williams said.

“Three Paddocks Park is among parks in every division to get new equipment, features or amenities.

“These are priorities, as parks such as this are vital to the well-being of locals, help to attract visitors and help to foster the strong sense of community we enjoy on Redlands Coast.”

Cr Wendy Boglary said the Three Paddocks Park play space provided activities for toddlers, primary school aged children and teenagers.

She said the space also complemented upgrades to the dog off-leash area and installation of new exercise equipment.

“The new play space includes a basketball half court, climbing fort with net, nature play elements, flying fox, slide, swing, seating and shelters,” Cr Boglary said.

“Council received a great deal of local support for these upgrades and I know they will be popular.”

Cr Boglary said stage two of the park upgrade would include a car park, toilets and barbecue.
