Stirk Park Master Plan

The City of Kalamunda has embarked on the development of a Master Plan for the much-loved and historic Stirk Park to guide its sustainable development into the future and is inviting residents to have your say. A key aspect of this planning process is identifying how the park is used by the community and how you feel it could be improved.

The Stirk Park Master Plan development has entailed an extensive consultation process with over 650 responses via surveys, a workshop and information stall. The draft plan will provide a clear direction and to guide its sustainable development into the future. At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 22 May 2017, Council resolved to advertise the draft Stirk Park Master Plan for a period of 80 days for the purpose of public comment.

Key elements of the plan include:

  • Playground Upgrade
  • Youth & Sport Precinct
  • Lake Upgrade
  • Public Art & Entry Statements
  • Sound Shell & Amphitheatre Upgrades

Hartfield Park Master Plan

Hartfield Park is a large district level reserve that accommodates a variety of sports as well as substantial areas of protected native bushland. With population growth in the local community and clubs increasing in membership, the City acknowledges the need to enhance and develop available sport and recreation facilities.

In order to ensure suitable sport and recreation infrastructure is provided for the current and future needs of the community, the City implemented a key recommendation of the Sporting Reserve Development Plan 2006: the preparation of a Master Plan for Hartfield Park.

The Master Plan (2010) considers the current and future needs of the City of Kalamunda and key stakeholders within a prioritised development plan for Hartfield Park. This report will assist the City in providing a well planned, sustainable sporting and recreation facility that will maximise benefits to the community over the long term.
