Sculpture Park officially opened by Premier

​SHIRE of Mundaring's newly upgraded Mundaring Community Sculpture Park was officially opened by the Premier today.

WA Premier Colin Barnett attended the ceremony, along with many other members of Cabinet and local politicians.

Shire President David Lavell said the Shire was extremely proud of the $1.1million project.

"The project has been many years in planning and works began in 2015 with an overhaul of the play space," he said.

"New equipment, a boardwalk tunnel, swings and a flying fox have been installed, along with a very popular nature play area and an educational, interactive play installation in the form of an Ornate Crevice Dragon.

"Recently the carpark and picnic zones were completed which has expanded the grassed areas, and included the installation of new BBQs and picnic tables."

Cr Lavell said Sculpture Park had proved a huge drawcard for the area.

"We've heard of people travelling from all over Perth to see our upgraded park, which is a fantastic asset for our community," he said.

"It provides a gateway to the nearby Mundaring Weir Interpretation Precinct and is a wonderful day out for the whole family. The playground also has many accessible features including swings, soft fall covering, paths and music equipment."

Cr Lavell said the project would not be possible without funding and support from a number of organisations including Lotterywest, Water Corporation, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Mundaring Arts Centre and the Federal Government.
