Wheelchair-friendly swing opens in Keith’s Don Moseley Park

The addition of the swing will benefit the many families and will encourage inclusivity at the park.

A new swing has made its way to Keith, but it’s not just an ordinary swing set – it’s a swing that is wheelchair friendly!

Finding its home in Don Moseley Park, the new swing was made possible through a community grant to the local Apex Club of Keith, who have been working on the project for the past two years.

The valuable piece of equipment means South Australia’s rural and regional playgrounds and parks are one more step closer to being accessible for all.

The project was made possible after the Apex Club received financial support for the project from the Keith and Districts Community Bank branch back in 2019. They received a $5000 community grant for the installation of the swing.

While the swing received a community grant to help partially fund the installation, the community of Keith rallied behind the inclusive project, with many members of the Apex Club donating their own money and time, with $10,000 of the clubs funds donated.

The Apex Club was one of the five recipients that received funds from the District Community Grant program, with a total of $25,000 grants donated in celebration of the fifth birthday of the Keith Bank branch in 2019.

The wheelchair swing is a welcomed addition to Don Moseley Park, which is already a popular spot for families and individuals travelling along Dukes and Riddoch Highway to stop and stretch their legs.

You can find a park with a liberty swing near you via this website.
