Facilities or Venues

Safety is important to the City and all our facilities including the ones for hire are inspected regularly. All electric, gas and water points are inspected and meet Australian compliance. Regular scheduled inspections are conducted to ensure we are able to provide working, safe and compliant facilities.

If vandalism or if you note any broken or missing fixtures or appliances, these should be reported to ensure the team can be aware and address the issue accordingly.

Parks and Reserves

The City of Kalamunda maintains approximately 790.66 hectares of public open space for the enjoyment of residents, sporting clubs and community organisations. Many of our Parks are natural areas that have been set aside for conservation of our local flora and fauna.

The natural parks within the City is one of the reasons the City of Kalamunda's parks are so popular. The City of Kalamunda residents and visitors are able to enjoy bushland, playgrounds or sporting events all year round.

 Many of the City’s parks are developed. This means that they have: 

  • Play equipment
  • Fencing or bollards
  • Reticulation
  • Buildings
  • Car parks and a variety of other fixtures.

Many of our reserves are managed by Environmental Services and the dedicated Friends Groups. Friends Groups are volunteers and provide their time to help maintain and re-vegetate their reserves with native flora and fauna.

Find out more about Friends Groups here.

Sporting Reserves

The City has many sporting reserves offering all year round use, with various clubs using the City’s Ovals and their facilities.

Sports turf surfaces are required to be maintained to appropriate standards such as SAA HB49.2 as recommended by the Sporting Facilities Manual. To achieve this, the City takes a technical data approach using soil and leaf tissue testing to ensure the correct fertiliser and water is applied.

The City also measures the amount of soil moisture, evaporation and transpiration of turf grass to monitor our watering, as well as measuring thatch and organic fines to guide our renovation programs. By reducing the thatch, water and fertiliser is then able to efficiently filter through to the soil profile to be taken up by the turf grass roots.

Road Maintenance

Each year the City spends approximately $950,000 on providing minor maintenance to the City’s road network. Most minor maintenance works are provided on a programmed basis, including:

  • Road sweeping
  • Patching of potholes
  • Grading of gravelled roads and road shoulders
  • Installing guide posts
  • Weed control

In addition to these services, the City also undertakes works on an emergency basis, including removal of spilt oil and removal of fallen trees.

Road Kerb

Kerbing is installed as a part of the City’s drainage network. Road kerbs both direct water into the drainage system and provide a channel for controlling larger storm events. Due to the importance of road kerbing, in preventing property flooding, a standard kerb is used throughout the City.

It is important in maintaining the drainage network that residents do not remove or tamper with the kerb. This includes placing bitumen or concrete between the kerb and the road.

Driveways (Crossovers)

The section of your driveway between the edge of the road and the boundary of a property is called a crossover. A person constructing a crossover may seek a contribution from the City towards the cost.

For further details and specifications download the crossover specifications and a contribution application form.
