IT has been described as “Bendigo’s most unique play space ever”, and it’s easy to see why.
Huge butterfly wings were lifted into place by crane on Thursday for the Where Angels Play junior play area at Lake Neangar as the $1.3 million play space takes shape in Eaglehawk.
The butterflies are the most eye-catching part of the area – but there will also be plenty more to see and do.
Mulga Bill’s Bicycle – complete with hamster wheel-style wheels and a wide slippery slide – has been finished, and finely crafted huts and benches have also been installed.
The play space is scheduled to be complete by the end of August, weather permitting.
Where Angels Play is being built in memory of Zayden Veal-Whitting, celebrating the life of the baby boy taken too soon.
A shelter on the edge of Lake Neangar was also recently complete, built to resemble a flying eagle, or a hawk, depending on the angle.
Community groups raised $145,000 for the play areas.
