WA's Best Youth Precinct
Adventure was on the top of their wish list when the young people of Geraldton were asked what it was they wanted in the Youth Precinct on the Foreshore. As a result, the City has designed and built a Youth Precinct that not only fits their bill but also scores thumbs up from the broader community as well.
Construction of the $1.94 million Youth Precinct was jointly funded with Regional Development Australia contributing $1 million in grant funding, $500,000 from Lotterywest and the City contributing $440,000.
The Youth Precinct was opened to the public on Australia Day, 26 January 2016 and features some amazing attractions. Its no wonder it's been called WA's best youth precinct. More here
Youth Precinct Elements
For those wanting to challenge their fitness level a Rage Cage which enables 10 different sports to be played in one space and four dodecahedron 12 sided climbing cubes are sure to get your heart racing.
A high rope sky walk dominates the entire space and is not for the faint hearted! Climb nets and rope ladders to cross sky bridges before escaping on the giant slide.
A combination of electronic gaming and explosive movements is what Neos Systems are all about. Play alone or in teams in this lightening fast game for people of all ages and abilities. Its dubbed the games for lungs, not just thumbs.
A Youth Precinct simply wouldn't be complete without traditional favourites including table tennis (table and paddles have been painted by local artists) and two foosball tables as well.
A wheel chair carousel and nest swings enable children, regardless of their level of ability, to have fun together in the Youth Precinct. These two pieces of play equipment were donated by Variety WA - Mid West Geraldton through the City's Everlasting Sponsorship program.
