Snells Beach local kids can’t quite believe their luck.

Over the last couple of years an adventure playground has started taking shape on Sunrise Boulevard.

Children and young people can now can play on slides, a rotating climbing net, a seat swing, basket swing and flying fox. The delighted shrieks that have been heard all summer prove it’s a hit, but there is more to come.

The Snells Beach Ratepayers & Residents Association is driving the $180,000 project, which is entering its second stage now.

Harcourts Tandem Realty, through the Harcourts Foundation, has become involved and is making a $2,500 grant to get stage two moving.

Snells Beach Ratepayers & Residents Association treasurer Mark Dinniss says until now there has really been nothing for toddlers, children and young people to play on in Snells Beach.

“This playground is for all ages. It’s challenging enough for teenagers, while also having something for the little ones.”

Stage two includes the construction of a seesaw, climbing net, supernova ring, basketball hoop and mini court.

Harcourts Tandem Realty business owner Nick Langdon says it is a pleasure to help fund something that will give so much happiness to local and visiting children.

“We are here to support the community that so generously supports us,” Mr Langdon says.
