Liberty Swing

The City of Vincent Liberty Swing is located at the children’s playground at Hyde Park,  cnr Throssell and Glendower Streets, Perth. The swing allows children in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the joy of having a swing in the park. It is the only swing of its type that is fully lockable and allows a maximum swing height – that is, really swinging, not just rocking back and forth.

As of 14 December 2018, a Master Locksmith Access Key (MLAK) will be required to use the Liberty Swing.

Liberty Swings are all designed to be locked with a key to ensure swing security when not in use. The key is used to access the safety belt compartment and to release the ramp on the Liberty Swing. The key has recently been changed to MLAK (Master Locksmith Access Key) on advice from National Disability Services (NDS).

The MLAK is an innovative system developed by Master Locksmiths and Spinal Cord Injuries Australia to enable people with disability to gain access to a network of public facilities, including Changing Places and other Liberty Swings, and now the Liberty Swing at Hyde Park.

To apply for a MLAK, please complete and return the Application Form with the $25 payment (per key) to the City.

Alternatively MLAK keys can also be obtained via
