On October 27, 2023, we were proud to announce that the Wagga Wagga Marketplace, owned by ISPT, opened a brand-new children’s playground for local families to enjoy, play and stay active.
The inspiration for the design of the playground celebrates the region’s rural roots and includes commissioned artwork from local artist Megan Cameron
to pay further homage to our rural surrounds and farming community. A second artwork is also included within the playground, with a mural curated by Unique State Artspace
celebrating the diversity of the local artists within the Riverina community.
The name of the new play equipment was settled on following a community vote on a select number of names submitted by the children of Wagga. The selection process then saw judges cut the submissions down to three names before going to a community vote, which saw over 800 hundred people take part. The name Windmill Park, submitted by Hope Gilmour, ultimately won by less than 100 votes.
Maria Sharman, Wagga Wagga Marketplace’s Centre Manager said, “We know a huge part of what makes the Wagga Wagga and surrounding regions such a great place to live is our beautiful, expansive outdoor environment and we are proud to bring the essence of this into the design and theming of our brand new a playground.”
The new playground, to be enjoyed by our local families, is a prime example of the centre’s commitment to continue improving customer experience and create new opportunities to celebrate our local community.
