Sport and Recreation Plan 2017 - 2027
The Town of Mosman Park Sport and Recreation Plan 2017-2027 has been developed to identify the current and future needs of the local community, sporting groups and other community organisations with respect to sport and recreation, outlining the Town’s vision for the delivery of sport and recreation services, programs and facilities. The Plan was adopted by Council in October 2017, and we thank everyone that was involved in the development phase of this strategic document.
McCabe Street Skate Park
In response to concerns expressed by users, the Town of Mosman Park has developed a concept design for an upgrade to the McCabe Street Skate Park, located in Tom Perrott Reserve and we want your input. Find out how you can get involved.
The Town of Mosman Park is proudly part of Western Suburbs KidSport. The program provides eligible families up to $150 annually for each of their children aged between five and eighteen years, to subsidise fees to join a sport and recreation club.

Nature Play WA
If you’re a parent looking for ideas on how to get your children more involved in outdoor activities in Western Australia, make sure you visit this fantastic new website: www.natureplaywa.org.au.
This site has heaps of ideas for activities and adventures – in your backyard, around your neighbourhood, and across Perth and Western Australia.
There are lots of reasons why kids should make the move from the TV or computer room to the outdoors. Probably the best reason is that it’s fun, and you and your kids will be happier and healthier doing things together.
But there are other important considerations. Research undertaken around the world indicates there are real benefits for children being involved in nature.
Such research indicates that:
- Children benefit from appropriate risk-taking during outdoor play, by helping them refine their motor skills and gain confidence in being physically active
- Older children who spend more time outside tend to be more physically active and less likely to be overweight, and
- School gardens positively affect children’s learning and behaviour, and that students involved in gardening develop a better school attitude, student bonding and teamwork.
Richard Louv Chair and Co-founder of the Child and Nature Network argues that part of the problem is the rise in popularity of computer games and television. But he also points out that because of things such as ‘stranger danger’ and sensationalist media reporting, many parents might be scared to let their children take part in traditional outdoor activities such as bushwalking, camping and excursions.
