Logan City Council, Jimboomba Rotary Club and Variety representatives celebrated the completion of the Sway Fun Glider at Rotary Park, Jimboomba.

The glider is fitted with a wheelchair accessible ramp and platform to allow children of all abilities to use the facility for entertainment.

Logan City Council, Jimboomba Rotary Club and children's charity Variety made the community project possible.

Cr Trevina Schwarz paid tribute to all community stakeholders during an ordinary council meeting on Tuesday.

"This is a fantastic result for the community and highlights just what can be achieved through collaboration," she said.

"By partnering with Variety and Rotary we've been able to deliver this valuable project, allowing children of all abilities and ages to interact together, on an equal platform, in this wonderful environment."

Variety Bash Car nine captain Kerrie Somers said the glider was a step in the right direction toward empowering sick or disabled kids.

"We worked hard to raise the funds for this Sway Fun Glider and sought the assistance of Logan City Council and the Jimboomba Rotary Club who, without their assistance we would not have achieved this," she said.

Jimboomba Rotary Club president Mal Strachan said it was rewarding to help deliver a community friendly project.

"It is wonderful that the Rotary Club of Jimboomba have been part of the installation of inclusive play equipment in Rotary Park," he said.

Representatives from all three organisations celebrated the milestone before local kids tried out the glider for their first time.
