Jurien Bay Foreshore and Youth Precinct / Skatepark

The Jurien Bay Foreshore and Youth Precinct is evolving as a vibrant cultural hub for all age groups.  As such, the Shire will proceed over a number of stages to activate the foreshore masterplan that was adopted by Council in early 2020.  With Lotterywest as a Major Supporter of stage one, this stage will incorporate the development of a skatepark and youth precinct.  In addition, we are currently working on stage two which will incorporate a new pavilion and ablutions block, and the incorporation of decking to facilitate a future beach bar at the start of the jetty.  All plans have considered future recreational, community, commercial and civic needs within the precinct.

Due to the projects’ high level of local impact on the community, a working group will ensure that development of the detailed design of the Jurien Bay Foreshore and Youth Precinct is representative of the community's values, whilst aligning with the key objective of delivering a contemporary, flexible and bespoke foreshore environment that retains Jurien Bay’s sense of place and uniqueness and will ensure that local content, values, and interpretation are incorporated into detailed designs.

Next Steps?

The Shire has engaged Convic to develop detailed designs and construct the youth precinct / skate park component of stage 1.  Final designs have been submitted and on-site work is due to commence mid-end November.  Feedback will be collated from the Jurien Bay Foreshore Working Group and submitted to the consultant team. 

The Jurien Bay Skatepark and Youth Precinct is due for completion by March 2021.

The images below show how the skatepark design is developing through feedback and input from the foreshore working group.
