Community Recreation Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are developing a Community Recreation Plan to guide the future of sport and recreation facilities and infrastructure over the next 15 years.

The Community Recreation Plan will consider the needs of all current and future users of our parks, reserves and community facilities, so we can continue to provide a broad range of sport and recreation opportunities for the community.

What is recreation?

For the purposes of the Community Recreation Plan, we consider recreation to be an activity that people engage in during their free time that they enjoy and recognise as having physical, mental, or social value. This means that riding a bike, playing sport, running in a group, or bushwalking are all considered recreation. The plan will focus mainly on:

  • Facilities used for sport and recreation activities
  • Support for clubs and community groups
  • Larger District and Regional Parks and reserves, and
  • Community recreation infrastructure, such as outdoor courts, exercise equipment, skate parks.

Thank you to everyone who contributed a survey in March this year - your feedback is much appreciated and is very valuable to the process of developing the Community Recreation Plan. An engagement outcomes report is now available to view by clicking here. You can also find the report in the Document Library.

A progress update on the status of the plan was considered by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday 24 August, 2021. You can view this report on the meeting agenda on the City's website here.

What's next?

We are now busy developing the draft plan and actions for the Short (1 to 5 yrs), Medium (5 to 10 yrs) and Long term (10 yrs +), and will be submitting another report to Council on 26 October 2021, containing draft actions informed by community and stakeholder engagement, research and analysis. Between now and the end of the year, the City will work on developing critieria to prioritise the actions, before recommending these to Council in a final report early next year. Once Council has approved the draft action plan for comment, it will be posted here.

If you have any queries about the project, please call the City on 08 9272 0622 or email lucy.griffiths@bayswater.wa.gov.au.
