New adventure play and picnic facilities have been officially opened at the Saw Avenue Picnic Area in Kings Park.

Variety PlaceThe launch of Variety Place marks the final stage of planned improvements to this popular precinct, which has been made possible by Variety WA - the Children's Charity.

The area was officially opened by Donna Faragher JP MLC, who said the new additions for play and picnicking really do make this one of the most attractive and inviting areas for families in Perth.

'We owe enormous thanks to those at Variety WA who have shared the vision with Kings Park to improve this area and particularly to make it accessible to children of all abilities', she said.

The expanded design includes a fort, climbing net, bridges, tunnels and climbing logs, as well as new barbecues, picnic tables and woodcarved artworks by local artist Nic Compton. The area is well-equipped for all visitors, but it has been developed with the particular emphasis on universal access.

A new footpath for pedestrians accessing Kings Park from the Subiaco entrance, with links to existing paths, is a welcome addition to enhance visitor access.

The area was launched to coincide with the home coming of the Variety Bashers, whose fundraising has made the project possible.

The adventure space has been designed by landscape architects Plan E, planting and irrigation by Kings Park and site construction by MG Construction.
