Kaitlyn Cummins, instigator of the proposed playground, said she was thrilled with the announcement.

“On behalf of the Playground Committee we would like to extend a huge thanks to the Yarrawonga Holiday Park Committee of Management,” she said.

“Their foresight and generosity towards the community is wonderful, they truly are an enormous asset to our town.”

Kaitlyn said the proposed playground will be built by the community for the community and be filled with fun and challenging experiences for children of all ages and abilities from babies to teenagers. “The proposed playground will be a unique and innovative space with a nature and river theme which we hope will attract tourists from all over Victoria and Southern NSW,” she said.  

“Play not only contributes to a child’s health, wellbeing, education, physical, social and cognitive development, but is also an invaluable tool in the development of strong community connections.”

The Playground Committee is currently seeking pledges of support or donations for the project. “Support from local families and businesses by way of volunteers, donation of materials or equipment sponsorship would be hugely appreciated,” Kaitlyn said.

“Major sponsors, which now include the Yarrawonga Holiday Park, will attract significant media coverage including our Facebook page which is regularly viewed by more than 5,000 people.

“Plaques would also be placed beside any items donated or purchased with funds to acknowledge the contributors’ generosity.” 

The Playground Committee has been investigating appropriate play equipment and Kaitlyn said prices range from $1,400 to $135,000.

 “We are hoping to have the project completed prior to next summer, but this is largely dependent on community support and generosity,” Kaitlyn said.
