Lizard leaps into action

WEEKS of curiously peering through the construction fences surrounding Highbrook Park ended for Muswellbrook residents last weekend when the playground was reopened.

Children, at times accompanied by their parents, were constantly sliding down the novel lizard slide.

The joint winners of the wildest bike creation competition were Chelsea Irwin and Lucy Whitton.

Casey Gilbey from Muswellbrook Shire Council said she was grateful for all the community groups and businesses that helped.

“Thank you for coming along and volunteering your time,” she said.

“I’d like to thank the community for the support - it was a great turn out.”

The redevelopment was officially opened by Senator Doug Cameron.
