04 January 2022 3:34 PM

The City of Kalamunda has secured a $1.715 million grant from Lotterywest towards the construction and associated costs for development of the playground and skate park at the Stirk Park Precinct.

The upgrades are part of the Stirk Park Master Plan endorsed by Council in 2018 and will see the northern area of the park transformed into a modern and accessible area for families of all ages to enjoy.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said that securing the funding is an important step in the continued revitalisation of the park area.

“We know through consultation that the skate park and playground redevelopment for Stirk Park are important to our community, and I’m thrilled to announce that we have secured this crucial funding for the project.”

“We thank Lotterywest for supporting the City in developing this important space for our growing community. It is a project the community have continuously told us is a priority, and the funding announcement brings the project a major step forward towards reality.”

The announcement comes after Council endorsed concept designs for Stage One priorities of the Stirk Park Master Plan in October 2020 following detailed community consultation, and an allocation of $316,000 was made in the 2021/22 Budget to undertake detailed design of the redevelopment.

The City will commence pre-works in January 2022 around the Lake area to improve the Park drainage system and set itself up for the playground and looks forward to completing detailed design of the Playground, which is expected in April 2022.
