Creative Recycling Centre is excited to be working with Act for Kids on the Safe Harbour Therapy Garden project. Act for Kids, which has helped 230 Gladstone children since it opened its doors in the Port City last year, was this year's major community beneficiary of Gladstone Ports Corporation’s first Port to Park FunD Run. The Port to Park FunD Run is a community FunD run coordinated by Gladstone Ports Corporation to support and enhance the Gladstone community by raising funds for local schools and a major community beneficiary. The beneficiary funds will be used to create a fun, engaging, and safe outdoor space for active and creative play at the Act for Kids premises. The outdoor space will be a collaboration between Creative Recycling Centre and local artist Rosemary Anderson, with the support of CRC’s volunteers and the Gladstone Men’s Shed. It has been designed for visual enhancement, active and imaginative play, sensory and auditory stimulation and establishing connections with staff and families. The outdoor elements for the therapy garden include:
Musical instrument and tactile wall
Edible hanging garden wall
Mosaics in casement windows
Fantasy tree creations
Seahorse and mermaid sculptures
These elements will be completed in stages, with overall project completion by June 2022.
