THE redevelopment of the Wittenberg Reserve playground is complete.
The $665,000 project was jointly funded by the state government and Frankston ratepayers. The new play space features swings, a slide, a basketball half-court, a sandpit, and climbing courses.
Frankston mayor Nathan Conroy said that the redevelopment makes the park more inclusive for “a range of ages and abilities and provides more interactive play opportunities and experiences”.
“Located close to Kingsley Park Primary School and local cafes as well as the Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve and Peninsula Link Trail, the new play space integrates perfectly with the bushland backdrop of Witternberg Reserve. The nature-inspired play space is enhanced with native and indigenous plantings to support local wildlife and tree canopy cover to help keep our city cool,” he said. “We’re also delivering a new shared user path to connect the new play space to the Peninsula Link Trail so you’ll be able to jump on your bike and ride here.”
