Background

Marveloo-1.jpg

The Marveloo concept was developed by Don Di Giandomenico, Council’s Team Leader Parks.

Don was inspired by his wife Angela and daughter Jessica, who has cerebral palsy, to undertake the extensive work to design and develop the project. 

Marveloo’s design means that carers will have peace of mind that facilities will be available to cater for the needs of their loved one in a safe, comfortable and dignified manner.
