A group of Russell Vale dads donated time and labour to better their community on the weekend.
Members of the Fathers of Russell Vale Kids (FORKS) group spent their Saturday building an outdoor learning centre at Russell Vale Public School.
FORKS member Troy Kiefer said a sensory path and water feature were also completed on Saturday.
"All resources and labour has been donated," Mr Kiefer said. "It is great example of community getting together to improve their local suburb."
Mr Kiefer's sons have attended the school.
Mr Kiefer formed the volunteer group about four years ago, with the aim of helping the school's kids and the community.
They have about 65 members, comprised of "fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers and uncles", who have previously completed a number of projects.
The group's previous projects have included other work at the school, as well as supporting their local soccer club.
Mr Kiefer said a few companies in the area sponsored FORKS' projects.
"We are a non-profit community organisation who believe that making better fathers makes better kids and a better community," he said.
"People appreciate what we've got here and how lucky we are, and by putting a bit of work and time in we make it a better place."
The school's principal Paul Cuthbertson was one of their labourers on Saturday.
"It's such a tight-knit community, and there's fathers out here being involved in their child's education, getting involved in the school and showing an interest," Mr Cuthbertson.
"They're supporting other fathers as well, and once you have a strong network of fathers you have a strong community, you have great kids, everyone's helping out and the school benefits from it.
"I appreciate not only the work that they're doing, but the work they do for each other."
Mr Kiefer said they had more projects on the way this year, and were always seeking new members.
