Mandurah's disc golf course open to the public

MANDURAH'S western foreshore is set to receive some improvements and excitement as part of the City of Mandurah’s family friendly foreshore project.

The project saw the installation of the disc golf course in Hall Park, just in time for the summer holidays.

This is a free family activity providing great fun for all ages.

The disc golf course will be officially opened in March but families are invited to come down to the western foreshore throughout the summer to enjoy this fun, free activity.

People can bring their own discs (frizbees) or they can be borrowed from King Carnival or soon from the Mandurah visitor’s centre.

There will also be a series of free youth events featuring DJs and live bands.

These alcohol, drug and smoke free events will take place in Hall Park on January 15, 22 and 29 from 3-6pm.

Artist Steve Browne will soon begin installation of the urban art project on the ablution block at Hall Park, which he will work on with local young people.

Other improvements made include 16 new street lights illuminating the pathways and seven new surveillance cameras now installed across the space.

The grant-funded project has been developed in response to issues highlighted by residents, businesses and WA Police, and works to continue to uphold community safety and crime prevention.

The project received $250,000 in funding from the Federal Attorney General’s Department through the Safer Streets Fund.
