Playdeck upgrade enjoyed by hundreds through Playgroup SA


After many years of use, and the pitter patter of hundreds, if not thousands of feet, Playgroup SA’s outdoor play deck in the Prospect Playroom needed a revamp.

Grants SA provided almost $10,000 toward an upgraded play deck, including a new sandpit, imaginative play area and comfortable bench seat, also supported by the Harcourts Foundation.

“We thank the Harcourts Foundation and Grants SA for seeing the value in the play deck and for graciously believing our applications were worthy of supporting,” said Playgroup SA.

“The children were the biggest winners in this project – with more than 150 children using it weekly.

“After 8 months of not being able to get outdoors and ride bikes (during COVID-19 precautions), they certainly were keen to get outdoors and ride bikes, make mud pies and play in the sandpit!”
