The consultation session will coincide with a free skate park event, hosted by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Youth Council and PCYC at Kingsbury Park between 4pm-8pm, featuring stake workshops and competitions. The event will also include food and giveaways for all event participants.

While at the event attendees can speak to pump track design Architects and take a short survey, providing the City and its contracted project designers with valuable insight into what the community would like to see as part of the track.

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Youth Mayor Nandini Gera said it was vital to hear from those in the community who are passionate about BMX, skating, and scootering, as they will be the users of the new state-of-art facility.

"We’re excited for this next stage of our Youth Precinct Project. Young people and riders will now get the opportunity to work with the designers in designing what the pump track will look and be like."

“If you’re a skater, BMX rider or scooter rider this is your opportunity to help design your future track and we encourage to come down and have your say.”

The Kalgoorlie-Boulder Youth Precinct will be a purpose-built Youth Precinct located in the Lord Forrest and Kingsbury Park site. Co-funded by the City and State Government, the precinct will bring great benefits for youth and families of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

Following the consultation session, feedback can be provided online via the City’s community consultation website where the master plan for the precinct is also available.
