Seaside opens its first park in Madora Bay | PHOTOS

Sunday, November 14 marked the official opening of Seaside's first completed park and playground in Madora Bay, with over 400 people attending the free community event.

The event was a fun day out for the whole family, with a range of free activities available including a kids treasure hunt, sporting activities, face painting, live entertainment and the chance to get up close and personal with a range of large construction machinery used on site provided by Wormall Civil.

The new playground equipment includes a cubic climbing tower, climbing ropes, swing set, slide and viewing platform.

The new park is also home to a large public art piece, designed and created by artist, Jason Hirst of Little Rhino Designs. The art piece draws inspiration from the Neptune Grass spheres that are sometimes washed up along local beaches and brought back to life by incorporating Seaside's vibrant coastal colours.

Satterley's Community Development Manager, Amy Blundell, said "The park is a great feature for families in Seaside as well as the rest of the local surrounding community, and our team is looking forward to hosting a range of community events and activities here."

"It's not just about what's happening at Seaside. The estate will also be supporting some exciting upcoming community events in the local area such as the Madora Bay Community Association Christmas Carols, Mandurah Christmas Lights Trail and the inaugural Flow State Festival," Ms Blundell said.

Seaside is a new estate located 7km north of the Mandurah city centre.

The official opening ceremony saw the cutting of the Satterley ribbon by CEO, Nigel Satterley AM, City of Mandurah Mayor, Rhys Williams, and Deputy Mayor Cr Caroline Knight.
