Liberty Swing shade structure now finished

Published on 28 May 2019


The Liberty Swing shade structure is now complete, thanks to the generosity of the Maryborough Lions Club.

At a cost of $12,500, the local Maryborough Lions Club provided funds for the shade structure to cover the Liberty Swing – which the Maryborough Lions Club also funded.

The Liberty Swing is located at the Adventure Playground in Princes Park and is specifically designed for mobility impaired children and adults, and accommodates wheelchairs.

Central Goldfields Shire Administrator Karen Douglas said the Liberty Swing is a wonderful initiative and the shade structure complements it well.

“Congratulations to the Maryborough Lions Club for undertaking this project. The Liberty Swing is hugely popular and now children and adults will be able to enjoy it without the glare and heat of the sun or dampness from rain.”

Maryborough Lions Club President Lorraine Parker said the Club is extremely pleased to the project finalised.

“We are very proud of what has been achieved and thanks to all those who have contributed in any way to this venture for the use of members of our community and visitors to our district,” she said.

“Our sincere thanks go to the Central Goldfields Shire Council for assisting us with the realisation of this project.”

Access to the Liberty Swing requires a universal key which provides access to every Liberty Swing nation-wide.

Keys are available from the Maryborough Lions Club bookshop, the Maryborough Caravan Park and Central Goldfields Visitor Information Centre.
