Waterlily Park in Ocean Shores is open for play and lots of people showed up on Friday, 10 March to celebrate. ‘It was beautiful to see so many of the community coming along,’ said Orit Ben-Harush, from the waterlily playscape committee.
‘This is a really exciting project for people in Ocean Shores where there are so few of these spaces. The kids were happy and the parents were happy.’
They are now launching the second stage of the project to crowdsource funding for a shade cloth, flying fox, treehouse and fairy chair.
‘We have local craftspeople, professionals, artists, carpenters and volunteers ready to do the work we just need money for the materials.’
Materials for the four items will cost $50,000 and all the money raised from crowdfunding will go directly to their purchase.
‘It’s so heart-warming to see how a community dream is coming true,’ said Josie, Chair of the Waterlily Playscape Committee.
‘The whole community is excited about finally having splendid playground equipment in a spacious public space to hang around at.’
