Shape Your Public Spaces with the Parks and Paths Strategy

Published: Thursday, 14 March 2019 at 5:05:45 PM

The Town of Port Hedland’s draft Parks and Paths Strategy is now available for feedback, giving residents the opportunity to have a say on the future of public space development.

The draft strategy is available online and in hard copy, and provides both a detailed assessment of the Town’s existing parks and paths and future provisions.  

The Town currently maintains over 30 recreational and communal public spaces across Port and South Hedland, contributing to residents’ health and wellbeing.

Mayor Camilo Blanco said public spaces were a vital component in building an attractive and liveable town for families.

“The Strategic Community Plan showed peoples’ preference for investment in our current public spaces, as well as an appreciation for the natural environment.

“Therefore, delivering more shade structures, modern play equipment and accessible paths needs to reflect residents’ attitudes and serve the needs of families.

“Our focus is on core infrastructure renewal and investment, with accessibility and inclusivity our key priorities.

“The consultation period is open until Wednesday 17 April, so I encourage you to peruse the document and make recommendations.”

Information Stalls on the draft Parks and Paths Strategy will be held at the following locations:

  • Saturday 23 March 9.30am-11am: South Hedland Shopping Centre        
  • Friday 29 March 4.15pm-6pm: Kevin Scott Oval      
  • Saturday 30 March 9.30am-11am: Port Hedland Boulevard

Hard copies are available at the Civic Centre, JD Hardie Youth Zone, Port Hedland Library and South Hedland Library.
