Landscape plan adopted
At the meeting of 28 April 2021, Council adopted the Booyeembara Park Landscape Plan.
Officers will now progress to detailed design, tender and construction for the stage 1 works. The priority for stage 1 includes the golf clubhouse and community building integration area and olive grove event space, followed by the story telling circle and half-court basketball.
The works will be funded by the cash in lieu payment from Development WA from the East Village, Knutsford development. Construction will be timed around building the new golf clubhouse/community facility and is expected to begin in late 2021.
The landscape plan is a long term guiding plan for the park and not intended to be carried out immediately. The rest of the works will be progressively implemented over the coming years as budget becomes available. Budget will be sought for the next stage of the works, potentially including the amphitheatre, paths linking the story telling circle into park, and three shelters in the picnic area in the 2021/2022 financial year.

Mountain bike trail concept
The landscape plan also includes the mountain bike trail concept. Fremantle MLA Simone McGurk pledged $300,000 towards this project during the recent state election campaign, and the City will consider additional funding for the trails as part of the 2021-22 budget process.
The funding will construct stage 1 of the mountain bike trails, which includes the downhill trails. A second stage will be planned including the pump track, parking and picnic shelter areas and is subject to future funding.
We thank you again for your contribution to the project and hope you will enjoy the coming upgrades to the park.
