A re-elected McGowan Labor Government will invest in Kalgoorlie’s youth with a commitment to provide $2.1 million towards a dedicated youth precinct in the city centre.

The project will complement the Kal City Centre Project and unify Kingsbury Park and Lord Forrest into a central, youth-focused precinct.

A multi-purpose court, study areas, hangout spaces, upgrades to the stage, toilet facilities and lighting upgrades will all be included as part of the project.

The plans also include consideration for an indoor space that would offer young people a safe place to hang out, take part in workshops or activities, and connect with support programs.
