Thousands gathered at Sienna Wood for the grand opening of the Shipwreck Park on International Day of People with a Disability.

On Sunday 3rd of December, Stockland officially opened a $4.8 million shipwreck-themed park at our Sienna Wood community in WA, a joint venture with the WA Department of Communities, with thousands of families turning out to celebrate the International Day of People with a Disability.

 

The unique feature playground, ‘Livvi’s Place at Shipwreck Park’ was designed in collaboration with the Touched By Olivia Foundation, the City of Armadale, local schools and community groups to ensure children of all abilities can play together, including those with physical disabilities, vision, hearing and mobility impairments, or spectrum disorders such as autism.

 

Livvi’s Place at Shipwreck Park spans 6 hectares and features a 30 metre shipwreck surrounded by rocks, sand and shipping cargo to provide hours of fun for all.

 

Col Dutton, General Manager for WA who attended the opening said: “We are very proud to be setting a new benchmark for inclusive, imaginative outdoor play in WA, and it’s fantastic to open this new park on International Day of People with a Disability.”

 

“Not only does this park celebrate diversity and inclusiveness, but at three times the size of the WACA, it’s also Stockland’s largest park in WA. I’m thrilled to be here at Sienna Wood, celebrating with so many children of all abilities from across Perth playing at Shipwreck Park."
