Shire of Gingin: Grace Darling Park Temporary Closure

The Shire of Gingin has temporarily closed access to Grace Darling Park in Lancelin owing to recent storm activity which has badly eroded the beach and undercut the gazebo making it unsafe for members of the public.

“The gazebo structure and barbeque facility will be relocated to a safer area within the park until a decision is made for a longer term solution,” the Shire of Gingin said in their latest release.

The section of beach at Grace Darling Park has been subject to inundation for several years, with the Shire carrying out ongoing sand renourishment works, being the Department of Transport coastal engineers’ preferred erosion mitigation option at this location.

“It is obvious that sand renourishment at Grace Darling Park is not a sustainable option,” said Shire President Sam Collard. “Every year we spend thousands of dollars on sand works and every year the sea washes it back. It’s time to look at another solution.”

The Shire also said in the announcement that people should stay away from the area while works are being carried out and to respect any barricading that has been erected in the interests of public safety.
