Works are set to begin on Somerset's new all-abilities playground next week, pending good weather. A joint project between the Waratah-Wynyard Council and the Fairy Godmothers, the first stage of construction for Anzac Park will be focused on improvements to car parking. This will include the installation of a disability access ramp from the car park to the surf life saving club and the upgrade of the existing gravel and grassed area to asphalt. Waratah-Wynyard Mayor Robby Walsh said this project was going to be a "maginificent drawcard" for Somerset. "This is one of only a few all-abilities playgrounds of this quality," Cr Walsh said. "Along with the recently opened playground in Wynyard, this will be a crowd-puller. "It's going to be great for the use of people in our area, as well as drawing in visitors along the Coast," he said. Plans on the design of the all-abilities playground are still being finalised, with tenders expected to be sought in March. This stage of upgrades is being funded through a $101,185 government grant. The overall project is a $2.55 million venture.
