The grant was awarded to the City of Kwinana after an extensive and competitive application process during which the initial design concepts were presented.
The City can now reveal the final concept for the Kwinana Outdoor Youth Space - a $1.5 million facility that will replace the original skate park on Calista Oval. The community was engaged in an extensive consultation process to help plan the new facility that will cater for a range of different sports and skill levels.
Around 100 residents including youth, parents and a community group called the Skate Park Reference Group gathered at an indoor skate park event at the Zone Youth Space to provide feedback on the initial design concepts. The key take-outs include:
Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the funding will help build a facility that the young people of Kwinana can be proud of.
“The young people of Kwinana have really taken ownership of this project, which has been wonderful to see,” Mayor Adams said.
“The Outdoor Youth Space is clearly a project they are passionate about and I look forward to seeing our young people enjoy the space they have worked so hard to create.”
