Work on the new Frankland River Play Space is well under way, with the construction of road access on track and the base set out for the modular pump track expected to arrive in May.

Designed by WA company Nature Based Solutions, the Frankland River playground will incorporate slides, a yarning circle, water fountains, swings and a flying fox.

Another feature of the space will be the modular pump track, a bike track track with rises, dips and edges designed to propel riders along primarily through momentum.

Nature Based Solutions have designed nature play parks for schools and communities throughout Australia, including the regional towns of Newdegate and Tom Price.

Construction on the playground will commence in March.

“Being able to provide this Play Space with all elements will provide a safe and friendly place for both residents and visitors,” Shire of Cranbrook shire president Phil Horrocks said.

“The Play Space will be a meeting place for locals and entice visitors to stop, rest and explore the wonders of the Frankland River region.”

The Frankland River Play Space is expected to be completed by May 30, 2023.
