The long-awaited playground at the Angle Vale Community Sports Centre is now open to the public.
The City of Playford Council provided the facility for the complex on Fradd Road after a community consultation was held 18 months ago.
The complex is utilised by the Angle Vale Football Club, the Foxes Soccer Club, as well as the Angle Vale Cricket Club. This is the first of three stages and includes play areas suitable for different age groups.
There is a smaller playground suitable for younger children, and a taller structure being an adventure playground for older children.
The gates are opened by council at sunrise and closed at sunset so the whole community are able to enjoy the space.
Dogs are welcome, although they must be on a leash, and must be picked up after, with ‘doggy’ bags provided on the bin under the shelter.
The water fountain even has a spill over for the dogs to drink from.
The Lions Club of Angle Vale donated the shelter as a gift to the Angle Vale community, which includes BBQ facilities and a shelter for families.
“Council is excited with the opening of the new Angle Vale Playground,” Playford mayor Glen Docherty said.
“I am proud of the help and support of the Angle Vale Lions Club for supplying the shelter adjunct to the playground.
“The Lions Club has a strong community spirit and works hard for the community of Angle Vale.”
Dorothy Lewtas, president of the AV Lions was “happy to be included in this venture with the City of Playford in providing this much needed community facility at the busy sporting complex”.
