Parks & Facilities

Facilities, Parks, Open Spaces and Reserves

The Shire is responsible for the maintenance of several parks, public open spaces, ovals, walk trails and conservation reserves. 

The Facilities are managed in two ways:

  1. Shire managed
  2. Community managed

Although regular inspections of all parks and facilities are made, the Shire also relies on the public to notify us of any dangerous situations. Please contact us on (08) 9576 4600 or report a problem online:

Play Equipment

Please help to take care of our children, parks and playgrounds by reporting any damaged play equipment to the responsible organisation listed above.

Casual Booking Payments

Here is the basic rundown of how payment for casual bookings works:

 At the time of requesting a new booking or editing an existing booking, SpacetoCo run a check to see if there are enough funds on the Guest's nominated payment card. A booking request will not proceed if there are insufficient funds.

  • If there are enough funds, SpacetoCo place a 'hold' on the Guest card up to the total value of the booking.
  • SpacetoCo then pass the booking through to the Host for approval. The Host has up to 6 days to accept or decline a booking.
  • If the booking request is declined or ignored, SpacetoCo simply release the funds back onto the customer card.
  • If the booking is confirmed by the Host, SpacetoCo capture the required amount from the Guests card (which includes a non-refundable Guest Booking Fee)
  • Payment for the booking is held securely in Stripe and released to the Host following the completion of the booking.
  • SpacetoCo automatically generates receipts following each transaction, which are emailed to the Guest and Host and also can be downloaded from the SpacetoCo dashboard.

Once the booking has been finalised, the Shire receive a notification and will assign any discount codes and/or make any necessary amendments to the charges of the booking, to reflect the type of event that you are having prior to confirming your booking.  For example, the Bindoon Oval is free of charge for Not for Profit - FREE community events.  In the event of a booking coming through for this type of event, we will assign a FREE Event discount code.
