Safety is important to the City and all our facilities including the ones for hire are inspected regularly. All electric, gas and water points are inspected and meet Australian compliance.

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 number of natural parks within the City is relatively high by industry standards and may be one of the reasons City of Kalamunda 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:
To strike the right balance between quality and cost, the City maintains its Parks and Reserves to a ‘fit for purpose’ standard. This means that the Parks and Reserves present and function to a standard in keeping with its intended purpose and the way residents use the park or reserve.
Many of our reserves are looked after 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.

The City has many sporting reserves offering sporting activities all year round, with various clubs using the City’s Ovals and their facilities.
Sports turf surfaces are required to be maintained to a higher standard than passive recreational Parks. Guess work is not enough to meet appropriate standards such as SAA HB49.2 Sporting Facilities Manual. To achieve this, the City takes a more technical data-based approach such as using soil and grass leaf tissue testing to ensure the right amount of fertiliser and water is used. This scientific approach also reduces waste and saves water and money.
The City also measures the amount of soil moisture evaporation and transpiration of turf grass to govern our watering, as well as measuring thatch and organic fines to guide our renovation programs. By reducing the thatch water and fertiliser is able to percolate efficiently through to the soil profile to be taken up by the turf grass roots.

Each year the City spends approximately $950,000 on providing minor maintenance to the City’s road network. Most minor maintenance works are provided on a programmed basis, including:
In addition to these services, the City also undertakes works on an emergency basis, including removal of spilt oil and removal of fallen trees.
Kerbing is installed as a part of the City’s drainage network. Road kerbs both direct water into the drainage system and provide a channel for controlling larger storm events. Due to the importance of road kerbing, in preventing property flooding, a standard kerb is used throughout the City.
It is important in maintaining the drainage network that residents do not remove or tamper with the kerb. This includes placing bitumen or concrete between the kerb and the road.
The section of your driveway between the edge of the road and the boundary of a property is called a crossover. A person constructing a crossover may seek a contribution from the City towards the cost.
For further details and specifications download the crossover specifications and a contribution application form.
