Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Mandurah is about to embark on the exciting journey of creating a new recreation precinct on the Western Foreshore, a vibrant and welcoming place to meet, play and rest. The recreation precinct will include the development of a new adventure play space and the redevelopment of the existing Bill Bowler Skate Park into a destination Skate and Activity Space.

In August 2019, our local community and stakeholders were invited to contribute to the vision of the Western Foreshore Play Space through a series of workshop and engagement sessions.

The feedback from this consultation was considered and a DRAFT design for the play space developed.

During November 2019, the Draft Western Foreshore Play Space Design was shared with key stakeholders and the local community at a number of community events and via Social Media. Thank you for everyone who participated in this process and contributed their feedback and ideas. A summary of the consultation and design journey to date is outlined in the Western Foreshore Play Space Consultation Summary Report

Current Status

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are exploring new ways to proceed with the project and engage with stakeholders during this process.

The final concept is now being progressed, guided by the consultation that has been undertaken. The City of Mandurah has engaged Plan E Landscape Architects to further develop the concept and prepare the detail design, construction documentation and specifications for the two key, custom play Structures

The final concept for the play space including these features will be shared with the community by mid-2020 and will guide the detail design and construction of the play space commencing in late 2020.
