Construction works have commenced on the 1.5ha adventure playground located within the Amberton Beach foreshore precinct.
The park will contain a bright red and white 8.5 metre tower, complete with twisting covered slides, climbing nets and a viewing platform overlooking the ocean.
The new playground will feature a coastal theme with the tower, a shipwreck play structure, treasure map rope maze and marine creative spring rockers and has been designed to inspire children's imaginations and set a benchmark for creative play.
When completed the area will be perfect for family gatherings with a turfed kickabout area, cricket pitch, junior AFL, netball and basketball facilities.
The park is located adjacent to the recently opened The Amberton Beach Bar & Kitchen with the development's $5m foreshore precinct which includes an existing foreshore playground and green space equipped with car parking, barbecues, seating and wash-down showers, and stairway access directly to the beach.
Amberton Beach is growing quickly, with a new skate bowl, AFL-sized sports field, outdoor exercise stations, Pirate Playground, Scooter Park and network of cycleways and footpaths providing fun destinations for families.
