Princess Wallington Community Parkland

The City of Stirling is progressing to the next stage of the Princess Wallington Community Parkland project.

The aim of the project is to create a new community hub at the Princess Wallington Reserve in Balga that will provide the community with accessible and free recreational options for all ages, attract a wide range of users and encourage local and community events.

Previous consultation with the community revealed that residents would like the parkland to include accessible and flexible open grassed areas, kick‐about spaces intermingled with areas for sporting activities such as multi‐courts, skate parks, BMX tracks as well as walking trails, nature play opportunities and improved park amenities including BBQs, shelters, public toilets, seats, drink fountains and bins.

The City is now working with the Western Australian design team, led by Ecoscape Landscape Architects, on the documentation of the parkland. This team has experience with promoting social inclusion and community development in environmentally healthy and culturally respectful urban places.

The City is contributing $4 million to the project, and Lotterywest have also provided the City with a $2.34 million grant for the project.

More information about the history of the project can be found on the Infrastructure and facilities projects section of the City's website.
