> Liberty Swing
The Liberty Swing was developed to allow people in wheelchairs the opportunity to enjoy the fun and recreation of swinging.
Gladstone Regional Council is pleased to offer residents this award winning facility at two of its parks; Millennium Esplanade, Tannum Sands and Hazelbrook Park, Calliope.
The swing meets all the relevant Australian safety standards to ensure a safe, fun and enjoyable experience is had by all participants.
The Liberty Swing fully encloses a wheelchair and features an access ramp, wheel locking mechanism and safety harness, allowing a maximum swing height - that is, really swinging, not just rocking back and forth.
Other features include:
• Ramp access
• Wheel locking mechanism
• Safety harness
• Pop up seat
• Easy to use
Under the Variety Club's safety regulations, the swing is fenced and locked, and features a comprehensive set of safety instructions and operational diagrams.
This is a free service; however, a carer must understand the operation instructions prior to use and be in attendance at all times, enclosure gates to remain closed and report any damage to Council by phoning 4970 0700.
