A place youth can call their own
The Kingsbury Park Youth Precinct project has a clear objective: to enhance youth engagement and enjoyment by establishing a modern hub specifically designed for the young residents of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. Through the redevelopment of this precinct, the City aims to foster new and exciting opportunities for youth activities. It will create a sense of inclusion within the City's diverse community. The project aims to create a space that resonates with the interests and aspirations of youth, making it a place they can truly call their own.
Following extensive consultation with youth and the community, several key elements have been identified for development in the revitalised Precinct:
- A brand-new pump track, a first of its kind for Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
- Feature play towers, including bridges, netting, and observation points, providing exciting and engaging spaces for recreational activities.
- Hang-out spaces, including an elevated drop-in platform with an entry ramp, where people can gather and socialise.
- A versatile sports area featuring a multipurpose court that can be used for basketball and various other ball sports.
- Dedicated parking space for food trucks and a kiosk area that can be rented out for businesses.
- Upgraded toilet facilities and additional storage areas for convenience and accessibility.
- An interactive social spine with lighting, comfortable seating, and well-placed greenery to encourage social interactions and relaxation.
- Repairs and enhancements to the existing skatepark, ensuring it remains safe and enjoyable for skaters.
- Parkour and tag zones, providing dynamic and challenging areas for adventurous youth seeking physical activity and fun.
These elements have been carefully selected based on the input and preferences of the community and young residents, with the aim of creating a vibrant and inclusive space for recreation, socialisation, and active lifestyles. The revitalised Precinct is set to become a thriving hub for various interests and age groups, catering to the diverse needs of the community.
The McGowan Government has committed $2.1 million towards the Youth Precinct at the 2021 State election.
