Award-winning fun

THE kids loved the new Wellington Square playground as soon as it opened and now the adult experts have confirmed: Yes, it is fun, with the playground winning two awards at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture WA awards.

The intergenerational Noongar-influenced “Koolangka Koolangka Waabiny” (Children’s Children Playground) won the landscape award for playspaces and the people’s choice award. 

They also got two awards for the overall redevelopment of Wellington Square, which as part of the makeover was co-named Moort-ak Waadiny — ‘Searching for Family’ in recognition of 

its historical significance in commemorating the stolen generations and Sorry Day.
