Community Invited to Vote on Skate Park Name
The City of Kalamunda is thrilled to announce the shortlisted names for the upcoming skate park at Stirk Park.
A/CEO Gary Ticehurst thanked everyone who took the time to submit their suggestions for naming this vibrant new space.
Each name holds special significance with explanations included on the voting form. As a funding partner and dedicated supporter, the Rotary Club of Kalamunda receives well-deserved recognition in the official name of the skate park.
The shortlisted names include: Balgore Rotary Skate Park; The Coolamon Rotary Skate Park; Kalamunda Rotary Skate Park; Mandjar Rotary Skate Park; Rotary Kala Skate and Rotary SkateMunda.
This is one of the final steps in the community engagement campaign which has taken place over the past few years. Community members helped to design both the playground and the skate park.
The $3.8M Stirk Park Playground and Skate Park project received funding from Lotterywest, the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, the City of Kalamunda and the Rotary Club of Kalamunda.
Votes can be cast online at engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au or hard copies are available from the City’s libraries, Hartfield Park Recreation Centre or the Administration Building.
Voting closes at 5pm on Friday, 10 November 2023 and the most popular name will be announced to the community.
“The new skate park promises to be a vibrant hub for our youth and look forward to seeing the community's choice of name,” Mr Ticehurst said.
“The project is on track to be complete in Term 4 of 2023 and I am sure the site is going to be very popular during the summer school holidays.”For more information about the Stirk Park project including the skate park and playground upgrades call 9257 9999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
