The playground at Mundaring Community Sculpture Park was opened on the weekend, to the delight of hundreds of local children.
Shire President David Lavell said the fences around the playground came down late on Saturday ahead of the opening event on Sunday 13 March.
"Along with their parents, hundreds of children were able to explore the Park for the first time," he said.
"While this project was many months in the making, I think it's safe to say the children thoroughly enjoyed discovering the new equipment, water pump and nature play area.
"Our Ornate Crevice Dragon in the sandpit was also a highlight for many youngsters who used her as a balancing beam. A flying fox will be installed in coming weeks and will tie the playground area together."
The playground is one of four zones which will be revitalised as part of the wider Park redevelopment. Works on the picnic zone will soon commence and will include a realignment of the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail, new lawns and a BBQ shelter.
Cr Lavell said the total cost for the park's redevelopment was $1.06million. The project is on time and on budget.
"Unlike some of our other projects, a lot of the site and drainage works for the Park were completed by Shire Operations employees, in addition to their other workloads," Cr Lavell said.
"This has seen significant savings for the Shire and a fantastic new playground for the whole community to enjoy."
Lotterywest, Water Corporation, and Department of Parks and Wildlife have contributed funding to the redevelopment, which is due to be completed in September 2016.
