Welcome Park Karratha (Walgu Park)

Walga Park

Walgu Park, located on the corner of Sharpe Ave and Welcome Road, links the Red Earth Arts Precinct to the city centre and shopping precinct, offering a highly aesthetic shaded landscape for visitors.

The project included the following elements:

  • Long-vehicle parking facility at the rear of the shopping centre
  • A footbridge linking the long vehicle parking across the drainage swale to the park
  • A continuation of the surface treatment from the Red Earth Arts Precinct car park area 
  • High quality landscape treatment with a focus on shade, green space and seating areas for quiet contemplation
  • Retention (and shaping) of the existing vegetation where possible
