Go for 2&5 WA Junior Gymnastics Championships - Parking Disruptions

Please be aware that the Loftus Recreation Centre car park and surrounding streets will be very busy on Sunday 14th October. This is due to Loftus Recreation Centre & Loftus Community Centre celebrating their 30th and 40th Anniversaries as well as Gymnastics WA delivering the Go for 2&5 WA Junior Gymnastics Championships.

The Loftus celebrations will be held from 10am – 2pm, with the carpark closest to the entrance on Loftus St being blocked off between 9am until 4pm. Access to the Loftus Carpark will only be available via the Richmond Street entrance, as the Loftus Street entrance will be blocked off.
As parking will be very limited during the first two sessions of Sunday morning, please ensure you leave ample time to find parking and ensure you follow the City of Leederville signage to avoid receiving a fine. For all parking outside of the Loftus Centre, the Rangers Co-ordinator suggests that everyone checks for any time restrictions as parking in no stopping or obstructing properties and driveways will still be enforced. There will be a ‘no infringement’ zone, applying only to anyone parking in time restricted parking of the Loftus Carpark.

Gymnastics WA suggests the following for clubs, athletes and parents:

  • Consider carpooling with others to reduce the number of cars
  • Park on Richmond Street or surrounding streets – one side of Richmond Street is ticket parking, with time restrictions on the other side. The time restricted side will not be enforced due to being on a Sunday, as there are no restrictions on Sundays. Please ensure you check signage prior to parking to avoid fines.
  • Use public transport
  • Park in surrounding car parks eg behind IGA, East Perth/Subiaco Football Club parking off Vincent Street, School of Isolated and Distance Education off Oxford Street or Beatty Park Leisure Centre
  • Clubs designate a spot for athletes to meet their coaches and walk athletes into venue

Again, please ensure you leave enough time to find a suitable carpark, following all City of Leederville signage and we look forward to seeing you at the Go for 2&5 WA Junior Gymnastics Championships.
