The revamped area will be a vital recreational amenity for the local youth in Perth’s south-eastern suburbs, who were consulted widely during the design phase of the project.

When complete, the project will include:

  • split level skating plaza with rails and banks
  • shallow skate bowl perfect for all skill levels
  • sealed pump track for BMX and mountain bikes or scooters
  • urban play area incorporating a social hangout zone with social swings and platformed seating
  • a rebound wall and multi-purpose area to play games such as futsal and basketball.

In a first for metropolitan Perth, the entire plaza space will be covered by a shelter and will feature LED lighting and a projector screen. Colours of yellow, orange and purple will make the space a bright, inviting, and inclusive attraction.

The ground-breaking project, made possible by a $2 million investment from the State Government and $4.5 million from the City of Gosnells, is expected to be completed by January 2025.
