The Town of Port Hedland Council has endorsed concept designs for the JD Adventure Park.

 The Adventure Park is the third phase of a staged expansion of the JD Youth and Community Hub – a project which began in 2019.

 The proposed Park includes both a jump and pump track, parkour area with shade and art wall, community shelter with BBQ facilities, bicycle repair station as well as planting and open space.

 Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said the Adventure Park would contribute to the liveability of Hedland.

 “We want people to choose to live in Hedland, and that requires providing the social and recreational infrastructure that people expect from a leading regional town like Hedland,” Mayor Carter said.

 “We have heard from our community that facilities for youth are a key priority, and bike-related activity is particularly popular. I am pleased to share with our community that this project is now moving on to the next stage.”

The project will proceed to the second design stage, which will include developing further detail for the design of the park, such as materials and specific dimensions.

The Town will seek additional funding from external parties to support the project going ahead, which Mayor Carter said was crucial to the project becoming a reality.

“The Town of Port Hedland has committed $4 million to this project. Unfortunately, we can’t fund the full costs of the project ourselves and we will be looking for partners to help deliver this valuable project for our community.”
