Livvi's Place wins Australian Playground of the Year!

From John Perkins, Founding Director of Touched By Olivia Thursday 16 September at 9:41am.

"It is with a great sense of exhilaration that we are thrilled to announce that Livvi’s Place Timbrell Park last night, at a gala event in Adelaide, won the PLA award for the ‘Best Playground in Australia”. This is the most coveted award by all organisations involved in playgrounds around Australia

The success of Livvi’s Place Timbrell Park is being evidenced on a daily basis by its enormous popularity. On the weekend just past, it is estimated that over 1000 people visited Livvi’s Place. ( whereas the old playground attracted 80 people per weekend on average). We also continue to get regular stories on how the playground is changing the lives of families with disabled kids

Once again, an enormous thank you to all of our supporters who have enabled our first Livvi’s Place to become a reality."
