East Gippsland All Abilities Playground
The East Gippsland All Abilities Playground is a fully accessible playground that has toilet and car parking amenities.
A large crowd at the opening on 7th December 2013
The ‘From the Mountains to the Sea’ themed playground is designed to signify different parts of East Gippsland, from the timber mills to the shipwreck coast, and the extensive day visitor facilities, including shelters, BBQ’s and picnic tables, make it a perfect place for a family day out.
The playground features a Liberty Swing, which enables people in wheelchairs to experience the simple, yet often taken-for-granted, joy of swinging at a playground, and the entire playground design has a strong emphasis upon creating an experience for people with special needs, but it is open for the enjoyment of all.
A key to the accessible toilet (with electric hoist and a shower) and the Liberty Swing can be borrowed from the Bairnsdale Police Station (47 Main Street, Bairnsdale) or master keys can be purchased using the information in the attached flyer. Purchased keys also open other toilets and facilities across Australia that are fitted with this specially designed lock.
The East Gippsland All Abilities Playground is located at:
Park Street Bairnsdale.
(between Princes Highway and McLeod Street)
Entry to the playground car park is via Macleod Street.
