Play award

MELVILLE council has won a national award for its Piney Lakes sensory play park.

The award was for a regional play space that created a sense of “place” and helped childhood development.

Fremantle ceramic artist Jenny Dawson designed an interactive artwork for the park’s adventure playground.

“How wonderful to be part of this award for my artwork at Piney Lakes in Melville,” she says.

Dawson ran tile-designing workshops with students from Yidarra Catholic Primary School, Corpus Christi College and disability arts organisation DADAA during the production of the work.
