PHOTOS: Kids love new $100,000 kindy playground

TRINITY Simpson loves the new playground at Clinton's C&K.

The nine-year-old was among the small crowd of families who gathered for the official opening of the $100,000 playground at the weekend.

It was a four-year wait before the centre secured funding to build the new area that caters for up to 66 children a day.

For Trinity, the best part of the playground was the reading area and the sandpit.

"The bridge is cool too," she said.

"I like how it leads to rocks on the other side and you get to the bridge by using the little stepping stones.

"I also like how the garden beds are all different shapes instead of boring squares."

The new playground has more than five different play areas.

When the funding was confirmed from C&K head office, the children were asked what features they wanted.

Some of their ideas made the final cut.

"The bridge and the dry creek bed were their ideas," Clinton director Linda Hewson said.
