Donnybrook Community, Sporting, Recreation and Events Precinct

The Donnybrook Community, Sporting, Recreation and Events Precinct Project (also known as the VC Mitchell Park Redevelopment Project) is a once-in-a-generation investment into community facilities in our Shire.
For over 50 years, VC Mitchell Park has served the community well. Now, however, increasing use, compliance costs, building regulations and wear and tear are impacting the facilities.

The proposed State Government and Shire of Donnybrook Balingup collaborative investment is a visionary, intergenerational investment that focuses on providing quality community facilities for all Shire residents and will attract a new cohort of future patrons and users. The proposed facilities will cater for our Shire's ageing population, as well as attracting a wave of younger families to our amazing Shire.

The original Masterplan (May 2020), which was developed using previous community and stakeholder feedback, has been reviewed, updated, enhanced and refreshed after the most recent due diligence and key stakeholders Project Steering Group consultation.

The refreshed Masterplan focuses on activating the precinct for multiple community activities and purposes. This survey is your chance to provide valuable input into the refreshed Masterplan and how the project is envisaged to be developed going forward.
