Follow the white rabbit to garden show Slide closed

SAFETY concerns have forced the closure of a water slide at Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre. The Python water slide is closed. A statement on the PARC Facebook page read that there had been “an incident”. “We are undergoing a full review of the slide operation, and working with our water slide providers to get the Python open again as quickly and as safely as possible,” PARC said. “Prior to reopening the slide, we will be required to undergo rigorous testing, ensuring we maintain our highest standards of safety and customer experience.” The green Constrictor water slide is still open.

IF you look down the rabbit hole next month, you’ll find Cruden Farm in Langwarrin. The Langwarrin garden will play host to two performances of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by independent company Australian Contemporary Opera Co. The show will be performed on 20 February. It first opened in 2013 before selling out annual seasons in London. The music, performed by a chorus alongside a nine piece orchestra, is a mix of jazz, musical and opera. Australian Contemporary Opera Co artistic director Linda Thompson said the show was great for families. “Families will love all the fun and adventure of this staged, costumed contemporary opera — with an engaging and beautiful score and a clever blend of beloved classic literature with modern characters, all brought to life with the original set and costume designs originally created by award-winning UK designer Leslie Travers,” she said. “We have a fabulous cast and team bringing this gorgeous show to Victoria for its Australian premiere.” Ticket holders will also be able to explore the gardens in Cruden Farm.

2023 date for car park Continued from page 1 “We are confident that this project will meet the needs of current and future commuter car parking demands for Seaford, Kananook and Frankston communities and for those travelling from the Mornington Peninsula to access metropolitan rail services,” Cr Conroy said. “Additionally, this new car park will service the needs of the neighbouring Frankston Basketball Stadium during off-peak commuter periods, such as for night-time and weekend training and competition.” Frankston councillor Kris Bolam said “I am really proud that not only was the council able to keep enormous sums of federal monies in the municipality, but by partnering with the federal government we have effectively doubled the Coalition’s initial election commitment of additional commuter car parks for the Seaford precinct.” The car park is expected to be built by the end of 2023.
