Prosser Park Playground in Katanning is set for a significant transformation as reconstruction is scheduled to start next month. The weary 20-year-old play space will be torn down in mid-December after the Shire of Katanning announced it will undergo a complete revamp. Katanning Shire president Kristy D’Aprile said the outdoor jungle gym will provide a suitable alternative to the all-ages playground in the western part of the town. “The Shire of Katanning understands that the Prosser Oval playground provides an alternative option to the main all ages playground,” Ms D’Aprile said. “The all ages playground will always remain the priority site, however, council understands that Prosser is very well used and important to the community.” The playground was initially relocated from its original site as a temporary substitute during the construction of the all ages playground five years ago. “This playground was installed with the help of the Katanning Volunteer Fire Brigade during the all ages playground revamp in 2018 to provide the community a playground while all ages playground was closed,” Ms D’Aprile said. “The unsafe equipment was removed earlier this year and the new playground will cost approximately $100,000. “We have Federal infrastructure grant funds available and allocated some of that money to put the playground equipment in.” “There is no official close date other than mid-December at the moment.” The upgraded playground will have new obstacles including a rock climbing wall, inclined tunnel, challenge rail and roman rings. It is set to be re-opened in February next year.
