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  • New toilet facilities to replace the existing outdated facilities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.

To reflect the final design for of the Skate and Play Spaces, the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct Master Plan has been updated.

Current Status:

The Skate and Activity Space designed by Convic Designs (external link) in collaboration with local community was constructed by Convic between May and December last year. The amazing facility was completed and opened to the public on December 16 2020.

New toilets are under construction adjacent to the Skate Park and will be open to the public by early April 2021. Works to continue around the skate park in the coming months include path construction, lighting, BBQs, shelters and seating areas as well as the exciting Play Space.

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 design will be shared soon.
