Election campaign promises might just seem like swings and roundabouts.
That's exactly what Labor's latest commitment is if they are elected as majority government.
The dream of the Beauty Point community to have an all-abilities playground would be one step closer, with Labor committing $5000 towards the project.
The West Tamar Council secured $3 million from the federal government to deliver the Beauty Point Master Plan which included a playground - but extra funding is required for the playground to be accessible by all.
Deputy mayor Joy Allen said that a waterside playground had been in the planning stages for "some time", but the community decided it wanted an all-abilities option.
"The local Lions Club had promised $35,000 and the Rotary Club had promised another $17,500 to achieve the community's ambition," she said.
"The Beauty Point community then said it would raise the other $17,500 to realize the project."
Labor candidate for Bass Janie Finlay said the Labor contribution of $5000 would go towards the efforts of the community to raise the outstanding amount.
"It's been a long-term project for the community, and an elected Labor government would be really proud to contribute," she said.

An all-abilities playground would make for a more sensory experience for children, whilst also allowing those with mobility requirements to participate.
"All-abilities playgrounds not only allow children to climb and slide and swing in safety, but also allow those children, who want the experience, to lie in the grass, contemplate clouds, sit in specially designed tables and chairs just to chat, or to roll around easily graded paths in wheelchairs," Ms Finlay said.
"All-ability playgrounds are constructed in such a way that parents and other carers have vantage points to oversee the play of their children and intervene with a minimum of fuss when required to do so.
"Children like playgrounds that challenge them and allow them to take the risks that they want to build their play confidence.
"All-ability playgrounds match the comfort zones of both children and carers."
