Liberty Swing

The Liberty Swing is an accessible swing for children who use a wheelchair. The City of Kalamunda has a Liberty Swing in Stirk Park, corner Kalamunda Road and Canning Road located off the Elizabeth Street entrance.

A key is required to access the swing and enclosure and may be purchased or loaned from the City of Kalamunda at 2 Railway Road, Kalamunda, Zig Zag Cultural Centre or the Kalamunda Library, Williams Street, Kalamunda.;

Please note:

The City of Kalamunda has secured funding towards stage one of the Stirk Master Plan, which includes the construction of a new nature play space and skate park. The developments will see the northern area of the park transformed into a modern and accessible area for families of all ages and abilities.

The City is planning to relocate the Liberty Swing at a later stage to Fleming Reserve in High Wycombe. The City is also working on a new all abilities playground concept for Forrestfield.
