Tuesday 7 February 2006 New garden a feast for the senses
Local families involved in the establishment of the coast's first ever all abilities playground can expect to get their hands dirty when they help create a special sensory garden designed to stimulate the senses.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the new playground at Landsborough featuring the sensory garden had been designed in consultation with focus groups to ensure its suitability.
"We thought it fitting to invite some of the families who have been involved with this project to assist in the final preparation of the playground before its official launch later this month," Cr Aldous said.
The sensory garden will be a key feature of the All Abilities playground, a purpose-built, family recreational area that ensures equal access to play facilities for all ages.
The playground, located at Pioneer Park in Landsborough, features an innovative and creative design including water play, kinetics movement pieces, as well as the gardens, together with a diverse range of play equipment.
The gardens will boast a range of herbs such as mint and lavender with a variety of different scents and textures.
"It is a living, interactive garden designed to stimulate the senses, particularly touch and smell, and the community planting activity symbolises the value of the community and the contribution of those families involved in the design of the playground."
