EVERYONE is invited to the official opening of the Donnybrook Apple Fun Park extension by Member for Warren-Blackwood Terry Redman on Saturday at 10am.
The official opening will be followed by a Lions Club sausage sizzle from 10.30am.
The event will celebrate the new play area and equipment as well as the volunteers and businesses who have been involved with the Fun Park over the years.
The Apple Fun Park extension consists of eight brightly-coloured pieces of play equipment designed to accommodate children with special needs.
These include the state-of-the-art Neos 360, a learning panel which uses sound and light to entertain kids while developing coordination and the aero-glider, which is specially designed for wheelchairs.
There is also a large area of brightly-coloured rubber soft-fall to make the area safe for children of all ages, shade sails over the play equipment and extended lawn area and additional parking bays, including coach parking for school and group visits.
A big turnout is expected at this significant community event, which includes a Lions Club Sausage Sizzle.
The extension cost $630,000, the majority of which was provided through the Royalties for Regions Country Local Government Fund.
The Apple Fun Park is said to be the biggest free-entry playground in Australia. It attracts about 30,000 visitors to Donnybrook every year.
