The Shire of Plantagenet is encouraging residents to have their say in the redevelopment of Wilson Park. Shire President Chris Pavlovich said the aim was to make the park a more accessible and inclusive recreational space for residents and visitors alike. “Wilson Park is currently underutilised, and this redevelopment will transform it into a more engaging recreational precinct for all ages and abilities,” he said. “The community identified enhancing our parks, recreational spaces and youth services and facilities as key priorities earlier this year. The council allocated $150,000 in its 2022-2023 Budget to develop stage one of the master plan, on which the public will be able to provide feedback from December 5. The draft plan has been developed by CONVIC, an award-winning skate park design and construction company that has developed skate parks in Esperance, Margaret River, and Fremantle. Cr Pavlovich said CONVIC would undertake extensive community and stakeholder engagement to ensure the space provides passive and active recreational spaces for the residents of Plantagenet. “There will be numerous opportunities for the community to view the draft masterplan, complete a survey, attend workshops and information sessions so we can create a unique community space that reflects the needs of the community,” he said.
