Background

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

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 their loved ones’ needs in a safe, comfortable and dignified manner.
