Lethbridge Play Space officially opened


Geoff Howard, Member for Buninyong, officially opened the Lethbridge Youth Unstructured Play Space project in Golden Plains Shire on Thursday 16 June.


This multi-use play space provides an area that can be used for a range of fun recreation activities for local people; including basketball, netball and a rebound wall for sporting activities.

The location of the Play Space makes it an even more valuable addition to the community. Located in the centre of Lethbridge, it is close to existing play equipment, public toilets, the skate park, the Lethbridge Recreation Reserve and Lethbridge Primary School.

Golden Plains Shire Council Mayor, Cr Des Phelan, said creating opportunities for Golden Plains families is very important to Council.

“Families can use this space to enjoy quality time together in the great outdoors; in a way that promotes physical activity, fitness and fun. Kids can get involved in physical activity without having to plan or pay and they meet other children and build friendships while they are there.”

“Play spaces often complement club-based activities, like tennis, cricket and junior football – these are great opportunities for people of all ages to keep active and feel part of the community.”

The Lethbridge Unstructured Play Space is a $33,000 project, jointly funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria, contributing $20,000, and Golden Plains Shire Council, contributing over $13,000.
