Reserving areas and use of personal gazebos and tables
Bibra Lake Regional Playground is a public area, that cannot be reserved.
The City has received complaints that visitors are ‘reserving’ space within the playground by erecting tables and gazebos. Please note that gazebos and tables are not permitted. 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.
Due to the number of children playing within Bibra Lake Regional Playground, dogs are not permitted inside the fenced area of the playground. However, dogs are permitted on a lead outside of the fenced playground area.
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 traditional 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.
