In November 2018 we asked the community to provide feedback on concept proposals to transform the Western Foreshore into a destination waterfront recreation and leisure space.

Key Proposals:

  • Large scale Play Space including an adventure play area with elevated climbing structures, offering views of the waterways and a fully fenced area with a variety of play structures and nature play elements
  • Destination level Skate and Activity Space with separate skill zones and supporting recreation facilities and social spaces
  • Custom designed components, artworks and interpretive elements to celebrate our cultural heritage
  • New toilet facilities to replace the existing outdated facilities
  • BBQ’s, picnic tables and seating, shelters
  • Parking – including pick-up/drop-off and bus bays

There was overwhelming community support for the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct concept plans and proposals. A summary of the Community Engagement process and findings is available here. Council Adopted the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct concept plans at its meeting on 26 February 2019. Funding has been committed to implement the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct proposals commencing in the 2019-20 financial year with completion by June 2021.

Current Status:

The City engaged Convic Designs (External link) last year to consult with the local community and prepare the detailed concept design for the Skate and Activity Space. To reflect the evolution of the Skate and Activity Space design and layout, the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct Site Context Plan and Concept Plan have been updated.

Convic were awarded the contract for the detail design and construction of the Skate Park. The project is now progressing into the exciting delivery phase, with works due to commence on site in May 2020.

The local community contributed to the development of the draft Play Space concept plan last year which is now being further developed and a final concept plan will be shared mid-year.

The project is now progressing into the exciting delivery phase with works due to commence on site in May 2020.
