Hang out at Dutch Inn, Cottesloe Beach
The Dutch Inn, a historical landmark on Western Australia's iconic Cottesloe Beach, is the location for Funky Monkey Bars latest commercial installation, with a new public playground on the foreshore now open for the kids to play and the big kids to workout.
"Funky Monkey Bars manufactures its frames in Western Australia, so we take great pride in seeing our equipment being enjoyed by Western Australians on one of Perth's most beautiful beaches," said Funky Monkey Bars Commercial Manager, Allie Burdle.
"We created something that would suit the typical age group of playground users and added components that would challenge big kids and adults."
One of the first users to try out the new open space when it opened last week was Funky Monkey Bars Ambassador, Cottesloe local, Australian Ninja & Olympic champion, Olivia Vivian.
Olivia drew the attention of early joggers as she put her exceptional skills to test on the Cottesloe playground that includes three monkey bars at various heights, climbing ropes and nets, ninja style grips and handles, plus a flying fox.

The custom installation was made for the coastal location with marine grade steel for the bars and fittings. Tough coat covering was applied to the hanging equipment to withstand the harsh conditions.
Funky Monkey Bars was commissioned by commercial landscapers, Environmental Industries, on behalf of Cottesloe City Council.
"Working with Environmental Industries to help produce this great playground, at such an iconic Australian landmark, has been a great project and we are proud to be part of it," Allie said.
