The City of Bayswater is calling on residents to donate sand and water toys such as buckets, spades, diggers and watering cans to be part of a new sand toy library recently installed at Bert Wright Park in Bayswater.
Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the creation of a sand toy library at the base of the nature play area at Bert Wright Park is a wonderful idea.
"Elizabeth Cavalli of the Baysie Rollers approached the City with the idea of creating an interactive play space for children.
"The City is committed to activating its four major town centres so of course we were pumped to be involved.
"The Bayswater Men's Shed was tasked with creating the 30cm high wooden box which the City funded.
"Locating the sand toy library at Bert Wright Park was genius as it allows children and their parents to take full advantage of the surrounding facilities.
"Bert Wright Park is a top spot for families. The nature play area offers kids the chance to engage with nature and let their imaginations run free.
"It is also situated right next door to the Bayswater Library and right on the doorstep of the popular Bayswater coffee strip.
"Children can take advantage of the City's weekly Rhyme Time or Storytime sessions, have a play in the park then nip off down King William Street for a babycino.
"The sand toy library was installed this week and is eagerly awaiting its first delivery of toys and children to play with them.
