CHILDREN will be able to get up close and personal with snakes and other reptiles at a free party to celebrate the launch of a jungle park at Whiteman Edge on Sunday, September 10.
The jungle park party, on the corner of Everglades Ave and Gloucester Approach runs from 11am to 3pm and will have some live animals plus jungle face painting, a drumming circle, craft corner, sausage sizzle, green fairy floss, safari balloons and prizes and giveaways.
A highlight of the event will be the opportunity for youngsters to pretend to be George or Jane of the jungle as they try out the park’s 7m enclosed climbing tower with tunnel slide and a top platform that resembles a bird’s nest, cave-like play areas and a feature wall made from rock and boulders.
Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton encouraged families from Whiteman Edge and the surrounding areas to make their way to the action-packed event.
“This is the perfect opportunity for families to engage in some free fun while experiencing the adventurous play equipment at our exciting new jungle park,’’ he said.
“This park is another way to encourage people of all ages to get outside and be active, while meeting neighbours and making new friends, and that’s something we really encourage at Stockland.”
The 1.83ha jungle park includes a winding pathway flanked by retained trees, bridges, a timber boardwalk and climbing ropes and structures.
The playground in Brabham also has a dedicated toddler area with a slide and cubbyhouse, a shade protected area with seating, barbecue facilities and picnic tables.
