We Have a New Leisure Plan and Public Open Space Strategy!

Our Leisure Plan and Public Open Space Strategy will guide how we develop and manage our parks, playgrounds, and sports facilities over the next 10 years. 

We have incorporated the following considerations into our Leisure Plan and Public Open Space Strategy:

  • The region’s unique environmental and demographic factors;
  • Individual needs of townsites across the shire;
  • Diversity in population types e.g. permanent residents, transient population;
  • Population growth; and
  • Feedback from our community.

Some important features within the Public Open Space Strategy include:

  • Improvements to district playing fields in Rapids Landing, Parkwater and the future Arbour Estate to reduce the demand on the Gloucester Park Precinct;
  • New playgrounds in Witchcliffe, Gracetown, Augusta and Karridale; and
  • New public open space will be strategically located to help preserve native vegetation.

Upcoming projects to be delivered as part of the Leisure Plan include:

  • Witchcliffe hard courts and playspace construction (2023-24)
  • Alexandra Bridge court replacement and play facility construction (2024-25)
  • Augusta – Firestone Park construction (2024-25)
  • Gracetown playspace construction (2024-25)
  • Gloucester Park – Western Pavilion – redevelop pavilion and changerooms (2025-26)
  • Gloucester Park outdoor courts construction x2 (2025-26)
