The Kwinana City Council awarded tender for the design, construction and management of an 18-hole mini golf course and kiosk near the Kwinana Adventure Park during the Ordinary Council Meeting on 22 March.
Greenspace Management will design and built the facility, funding the majority of the capital costs.
An allocation of $250,000 from the City of Kwinana, which was previously approved by Council, and will go towards a kiosk.
Quotes for suitable whole of project insurance is also being sought by the City to mitigate risks during the construction phase given the current economic climate.
Mayor Carol Adams said the contractor would own and operate the facility for 15 years before transferring ownership back to the City upon lease expiry.
“Greenspace Management has proposed a high quality 18-hole attraction that has been designed to work with the natural contours of the site and existing vegetation to complement the Kwinana Adventure Park and Edge Skate Park," Mayor Adams said.
“There is no similar attraction in the immediate area, and this facility will enhance the space which includes the award-winning Kwinana Adventure Park, the Edge Skate Park, and the bike skills track which is under construction.
“The mini golf facility will be built between the adventure park and the recently announced bike skills track with a fee for entry, consistent with other mini-golf facilities in Perth.
“However, it is intended that the kiosk will be available to the public generally, providing additional amenity and convenience to the users of the adventure park.
“I know many adventure park users have been eagerly awaiting a kiosk and this project will create further opportunities for social interaction, low impact recreation, and attract and retain people within the City Centre while providing local employment opportunities,” she said.
