Stefanelli Family Build Their Legacy with New Junction
The City of Swan is delighted to accept a $1 million contribution from the Stefanelli family towards a new children’s playground in the New Junction precinct.
The decision to accept the contribution was confirmed at a Special Council Meeting on Wednesday, June 26.
The Habitat Playspace is part of stage two works for the development and is scheduled to commence construction in 2020-21.
The playground will reflect elements of the classic Australian backyard - a place to tell stories, catch up with friends and play.
The draft concept is based on the habitats of 11 insects unique to Western Australia. It is designed to inspire play, discovery, curiosity and delight.
It includes a chrysalis slide tower, wetland play area, snout-nosed katydid climbing cubby, habitat cubbies, parent’s bench and toddler’s corral.
The design will be refined through a community consultation process in 2019-20.
Joseph Stefanelli, Director of Stefanelli Nominees pty ltd said the Habitat Playspace will provide a safe and inclusive space for children to grow and play.
City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said he is grateful to the Stefanelli family for their generosity and support for the project, which is testament to the business community’s confidence in the City’s growth and development.
