Youth Spaces and Programs

Busselton Foreshore Youth Precinct 

The Youth Precinct is located on the stunning Busselton Foreshore just east of the Busselton Jetty, The Youth Precinct area encompasses the Youth and Community Activities Building (YCAB) and the Busselton Skate Park.

In 2016 the Busselton Youth Precinct and Skate Park was officially opened to the local community. The City of Busselton and Lotterywest co-funded the facility and design work was completed by Convic with significant community input.

In 2018, Mayor Grant Henley officially opened the Youth and Community Activities Building (YCAB). The building is also home to the Busselton Surf Life Saving Club, who provide vital event support and education on water safety and skills. The building has several rooms available for hire, suitable for events, meetings and workshops.

Busselton Skate Park 

The Busselton Skate Park offers a host of challenges including one of the largest bowls in Western Australia. At 18m long, 10m wide and 3m deep, this massive bowl is suitable for competitions. Those still learning to skate / BMX can utilise the smaller bowl which is 1.2m deep.

The park also has close to 90 meters of free-flow street skating space with a series of elements like kerbing, parking block ledges, skate rails and a smaller quarter pipe. The area offers 2000m2 of recreational space geared especially for young people.

There is plenty of seating, water fountains, green space, free bbq facilities and lighting for those wanting to shred at night. Public toilets are located close by at the Youth and Community Activity Building as well as public lockers to store personal items.

The Youth Space located at the Youth & Community Activities Building (YCAB) on the Busselton Foreshore provides supervised activities, games for youth aged 12- 24. The space is designed for young people to upskill, engage, socialise and receive positive mentoring.
