The City of Kwinana is preparing to reopen its remaining services in the coming weeks, in line with Premier Mark McGowan’s announcement on 29 May 2020 about Phase 3 of eased restrictions taking effect from Saturday, 6 June 2020.

Aligning with the announcement around eased restrictions, the City will be reopening all of its playgrounds, skate parks, barbeques and outdoor gym equipment from Saturday, 6 June, as well as reactivating the use of its recreational public spaces for community sports purposes and public events.

Additionally, the City will be recommencing public Council Meetings at their new time of 5.30pm and
will reopen its doors, working toward providing a full offering of services, at the Kwinana Public Library, Bertram and Wellard Community Centres and Kwinana Recquatic, from Monday, 8 June 2020.

The Kwinana Recquatic, specifically, will be back to its normal opening hours of 5.30am to 9pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday, providing pool, court, gym and group fitness experiences from Monday, 8 June 2020. Sports competitions will then recommence on Monday, 22 June and the crèche will reopen on Monday, 29 June 2020.

The Kwinana Public Library will also reopen from Monday, 8 June 2020, offering full services, but with altered opening times of 9am to 6pm Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm Friday, and 9am to 12pm on Saturday.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the City welcomed the news that we were entering Phase 3 of easing the restrictions around COVID-19 and that this step allowed us to look to the future and start to progress towards our new normal.

“While they were necessary measures to be taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, the reopening of some of our core services will help us to again provide the services that help to enrich the lives and wellbeing of those living in our community.”

“This is a step in the right direction and a reflection of the sensible approach taken by the community and the adequate measures that were put in place by government and businesses.

“While the easing of these restrictions are a reflection of Western Australia progressing forward in the right directions, we do still need to be reminded that while significantly improved, unfortunately the situation is not yet over. We need to remain vigilant and ensure that our complacency doesn’t compromise our progress.”
