GRAMS Reserve Upgrade

A long awaited upgrade to GRAMS Reserve which includes the construction of skate/scoot track and basketball half court, a water tank mural, entrance and misting sculptures and the installation of lighting which will enhance the recently upgraded footpaths and playground equipment will begin in early August.

The project plans and art work concepts for the upgrade were developed in collaboration with the community, landscape architects, public artists, skate park designers, local skaters and City staff.

Students from Champion Bay Senior High School participating in a series of on site and in school workshops at the beginning of the project to develop ideas and guiding project principles such as cohesion, healing and flow while including themes from the City’s Public Art Strategy.

Students then worked with the public artists George Domahidy and Pavel Perina to develop the concepts for the art work.

The Parks Level of Service and master planning project completed in 2019 identified GRAMS Reserve as being a priority for upgraded facilities. The project is an outcome of ongoing efforts by the City to provide sustainable and equitably distributed recreational facilities.

The improvements to the reserve will help bring it up to the District Park standard it should have, whilst changing the entire look and feel of the area for the local community.

Project Funding

The $625,000 project is co-funded with Lotterywest contributing $530,000 towards the works. More here
