Liberty Swing shade structure now complete

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.
