A unique new space has opened at Radiata Park in the growing suburb of Aubin Grove.
Featuring design input from more than 120 Aubin Grove Primary School and Atwell College students, the space is perfect for local families, teenagers, and young adults.
The $646,000 upgrade project includes a new 3-on-3 basketball facility, junior pump track and skate strip, and a Ninja Warrior-style obstacle course.
City of Cockburn Project Manager, Landscape & Coastal Projects, Craig Martindale said the upgraded facility was a great addition to the City’s parks and reserves.
“The new landscaping, green space and seating look great, and the layout integrates seamlessly with the existing park infrastructure,” Craig said.
‘It’s a clever design with the pump track and skate strip now ready for bikes, scooters and skateboards.
“It gives young people independent spaces to socialise, while creating connectivity with their neighbourhood and peers. I encourage everyone to soak up the new park.”
Young people and residents contributed to a park vision that met community needs, including those of young people aged 15-24, in line with the City’s Community, Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan (2018-2033).
This plan identified that Aubin Grove’s 15-24 youth age group will grow substantially over the next decade, making the creation of space for this demographic a primary goal for upgrades to Radiata Park.
