Nature playground opens at Len Packham Reserve

A new playground at Len Packham Reserve in Coolbellup promises a combination of nature and adventure.

The $500,000 nature play space includes a stacked log climb, a spiral ladder climb, a net tunnel bridge, climbing ropes and a dry creek bed with rocks.

The park also features a BBQ and picnic table, drink fountain, and bike racks.

The project was identified at a community workshop during the development of the Coolbellup Revitalisation Strategy in order to maintain the high quality public open space in Coolbellup.

Engineering and Works Director Charles Sullivan welcomed the addition of a new playground in the area, close to Coolbellup Community School and Coolbellup Library.

“The new playground is definitely worth a visit, and is an exciting addition to the nature inspired playgrounds recently completed at Dixon Park and Barrow Reserve,” Mr Sullivan said.

“Lots of recycled timber has been used and the playground has been designed around the trees to give it a natural feel with lots of shade.”
