    DONNYBROOK APPLE FUN PARK 
    The Shire of Donnybrook Balingup has received $1.5m under the Federal Building Better Regions Fund to renew the Donnybrook Apple Fun Park

    The Apple Fun Park was opened over 10 years ago and much of the playground equipment is now nearing the end of its life.  Since its inception, the Apple Fun Park  has become much more to Donnybrook than just a playground; it has become an iconic visitor and tourism attraction that provides significant economic benefits to the local community.

    Prior to determining how a reinvigorated Apple Fun Park might look, the Shire considers it important to understand what attracts people to the park and what people are looking for in a contemporary park. The best people to ask are those who use the park - parents, children and families.
