McCallum Park Active Area

Project Vision

Located on the banks of the Swan River / Derbarl Yerrigan, McCallum Park connects the Town of Victoria Park with the river, the Burswood peninsula, and Perth City. The McCallum Park Active Area master plan will transform the park into a significant recreation destination, with a range of sporting facilitiesalongside dedicated spaces to meet, host community events, and celebrate cultural diversity. Planned facilities include “hype-court” art-style basketball courts, a BMX pump track, and a skate/ scooter park. The park will be a place for everyone which celebrates and embraces diversity of age, gender identification, ethnicity, religion, culture and ability.

Project Objectives

  • Create a destination where local and regional visitors will have a sense of belonging
  • Complement the State and Federal Government-funded Causeway Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge with adjacent supporting infrastructure
  • Provide facilities for the community to foster inclusion, promote healthy lifestyle habits and teach lifelong skills
  • Create a safe space for youth to gather and connect on weekends and after school
  • Foster a distinctive landscape setting and character that includes environmental sustainability initiatives such as:
    • reducing overall turf area (to reduce water consumption)
    • increasing endemic vegetation
    • significantly increasing tree canopy
    • delivering sustainable and well maintainable assets.

The Opportunity

The Town is seeking external partners to embrace this opportunity to collaborate and co-fund the project. Opportunities within the space for external funding partners also include co-branding on-site, ability to provide or contribute to activation and support services operated from the precinct, event space and the operation of the commercial facility.
