Princess Wallington Community Parkland

The City is moving into construction works for the Princess Wallington Community Parkland project. Work will begin in late 2019. This will include work to remediate contaminated land and the temporary removal of some Balga trees, which will be replanted back into the park at the end of the 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, a BMX track, as well as walking trails, nature play areas and improved park amenities including BBQs, shelters, public toilets, seats, drink fountains and bins. The City has awarded the construction works to MG Group. Ecoscape Landscape Architects, who undertook the design and documentation will continue as the project Superintendents. Both companies are Western Australian-based.

The City is contributing $4 million to the project and Lotterywest has provided a $2.34 million grant for the project.

There is more information about the history of the project on the Infrastructure and facilities projects section of the City's website (External link).
