This is the final concept plan moving forward to detailed design

The City of Mandurah is delivering a transformed 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 Play Space and the redevelopment of the Mandurah (Bill Bowler) Skate Park into a destination Skate and Activity Space for our community and visitors alike.

The City engaged Convic (external link) to deliver the concept design for the Skate and Activity Space. Last year, Convic facilitated a series of community workshops where participants helped inform the design outcomes. The result is a unique destination level facility featuring 3 skate zones and surrounding recreation areas.

The facility caters for skaters, BMX and scooter riders of all levels. The central lawn opens up to activation nodes including a half basketball court. Coupled with extensive terrace seating, this area creates various forms of passive and active recreation for the whole family to get involved in or sit and take in the spectacle.

Current Status

The Skate and Activity Space designed by Convic Designs in collaboration with the 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.
