We all have, or have heard, many stories of the fun and adventure had at the good old Monash playground.

Now, members of the Monash community have come together, with the plans to build a statue to honour Grant Telfer for his construction of the old Monash Playground.

The community members are calling for donations in order to buld the project, and have setup a fundraising page here.

The Monash and Lone Gum Community Association is hoping to raise $80,000 for the bronze statue, which would be set to be finished in 2021, as part of the Monash Centenary.

Grant Telfer was a first generation child of the original World War 1 soldier settlers, who wanted to make sure kids and adults could play and have fun for free, so engineered and built the old, famous playground.
