Parks & Reserves

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.

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.
