Project Overview

The Bridgetown Youth Precinct will provide an outdoor recreational facility with a youth culture focus to support the local community and develop the local economy by providing a facility which will attract and retain families in the Shire. As has been demonstrated many times in other towns and centres, provision of a recreational youth facility will contribute importantly to the general emotional and physical health and wellbeing of young people in the community. The existing skate park is situated within a kilometre from Bridgetown High School, St Brigid’s Catholic Primary School and Bridgetown Primary School, making it a hot spot for after school exercise and socialising.

By linking the Bridgetown Library and Leisure Centre with a cutting-edge innovative youth space, the precinct will become a social and recreational hub for the young people of Bridgetown. Due to the amount of input young people have had in the consultation and design of the Youth Precinct will also offer young people a sense of place and ownership within the community.

A well-planned youth focused facility is considered to be an essential piece of infrastructure in a modern town – as has been demonstrated in many metropolitan and regional centres of Australia.
