Logan’s playground on way to being completed

LOGAN's Adventure Playground is one step closer to completion, with a new piece of equipment set to be installed with the help of one local business.

GJ Gardener has stepped in and become a gold sponsor in kind for the project and is donating staff and services to install the playground's newest addition, anEdgefort.

Last week, Lisa and Jono Moir, from GJ Gardener, met with president of the Play and Shine Project Group, and Logan's mum, Lisa Christofersen, Play and Shine's secretary Tanya Bandow, a council representative and John Harper, from Landscape Designs, to discuss the new equipment and the area where it will be installed.

GJ Gardener's Lisa Moir said she was more than happy to jump on board.

"We just want to finish the project and have the community enjoy it," she said. "The whole project is fantastic, it's a legacy of (Ms Christofersen's) son and it needs to be pushed along."

The playground is five years in the making.

Ms Christofersen said she was "moved" by the generosity of Lisa and Jono Moir.

"It's been a long, hard journey and for a business to step up and do something and not just talk about it is very refreshing," she said. "It's making the end date closer."

Logan's Adventure Playground also received $40,000 for equipment in the 2016/17 council budget.

The front of the playground is lined with a picket fence and locals can purchase a picket with their names on it for $99 to contribute to the project. With only 18 pickets left, Ms Christofersen said they had added an additional 280 pickets on the inner part of the fence that locals could purchase.

With still a long way to go, Ms Christofersen said she was still looking for local sponsors to keep the project rolling.

"People are going to start seeing a fast progression," she said.

The playground is set to be completed by August next year.
