The 7,000m2 playground has drawn on local wildlife and fauna as inspiration for many of its features including long neck tortoises, dragonflies, butterflies, native plants and footprints. The concept was designed to introduce children of all ages, abilities and disabilities to the natural environment through play.
The design of the playground incorporates existing tree canopies and includes a range of recycled material including disused power poles. The unique design provides families with a variety of ways to learn, explore and play.
A full time Playground Officer has been employed to ensure the grounds are kept clean, the equipment works and the place looks great!
OPEN - 8.30am - 9pm, 7 days a week, all year round. The playground is cleaned every day for two hours.
ADDRESS - Progress Drive, just south of Hope Road in Bibra Lake.
The playground has been designed to be fully accessible to parents and children with a disability. Some of the key features are listed below:
Bibra Lake is a significant sacred site for Nyungar people, reflected through the design of the playground. Giant talking rocks positioned in a yarning circle will teach children local stories and provide information about the lake and its importance to Nyungar people. A yarning circle is a tradition spot for gathering and teaching.
Aboriginal fish traps were the inspiration behind the large basket like climbing frames and cubby houses. Fish traps are the result of moving stone to form a wall or a ‘trap’ so that fish could be easily caught and extracted from lakes or ponds.
Please note that gazebos and tables are not permitted. The City has received complaints that visitors are ‘reserving’ space within the playground by erecting tables and gazebos. Bibra Lake Regional Playground is a public area, that cannot be reserved. In order to maximise the enjoyment of the whole community, the City requires tables and gazebos to be erected outside the perimeter fence of the playground.
Unfortunately due to the number of children playing within Bibra Lake Regional playground, dogs are not permitted inside the fenced area of the playground, however are permitted on a lead outside of the fenced playground area.
