ACTEW Water and ActewAGL will donate $20,000 to Boundless Canberra, the giant playground designed for children with disabilitiesto play alongside their peers.
The first stage of Boundless Canberra is due to open later this year and a range of equipment is already in place at the site in King’s Park, near the Carillon.
Boundless Canberra board member Natalie Howson praised the water and energy utilities for their “proud history of involvement in and contribution to the Canberra community”, which would continue with the donation.
“Shortly we will have swings, sandpits, water play, and a fort open to the public,” Ms Howson explained. “Stage 1 of the playground is close to completion and the layout and amenities can now be visualised, which is very exciting.”
Ms Howson said the donation would help the playground with “no barriers to play or inclusion” to open later this year.
