Woodville Reserve Landscape Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Check out the Landscape Plan to revitalise the western end of Woodville Reserve. The aim is to create a more inviting recreation space for the community. The Landscape Plan will provide smaller-scale elements that enhance the user experience and can easily integrate with any future Master Plan for Woodville Reserve. The Landscape Plan will increase the usable public open space, the tree canopy coverage, and provide improved connectivity and wayfinding.

Why we undertook these works?

Development of the Woodville Reserve Master Plan has been put on hold while other informing documents are finalised, such as the Sport & Recreation Facilities Plan and the Asset Management & Sustainability Strategy. At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 16 November 2021, Council adopted the City’s Asset Management and Sustainability Strategy. It is anticipated that the Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan will be completed in 2022.

In the interim, the Landscape Plan will help create more usable public open space in North Perth by converting the north-west portion of Woodville Reserve into passive parkland. The Landscape Plan will address an identified lack of public open space in the area in-line with the City's Public Open Space Strategy, and also increase canopy coverage in-line with the City’s Greening Plan.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 14 December 2021, Council endorsed the Landscape Plan. Implementation of the Landscape Plan was carried out mid-2022. The Landscape Plan responds to key stakeholder and community feedback to achieve the following objectives:

  • Create a more inviting, accessible, safe, and useable public open space.
  • Improve connectivity and wayfinding across the site.
  • Improve nature-based and unstructured play opportunities.
  • Increase tree canopy and vegetation.
  • Provide additional opportunities for passive recreation.
  • Ensure site improvements are considered, future-proofed, and can integrate with any future Master Plan.

What was implemented?

  • The Landscape Plan incorporated the following key elements:
  • Consolidation of the lawn areas.
  • Additional shrub, and tree planting.
  • Revised reticulation to support the lawn and new planting.
  • Removal of fencing to connect the lawn area with the nature play space.
  • Additional nature play elements and removal of unsuitable elements from the play space.
  • Replacement of boundary fencing where required.
  • Repainting of the existing gazebo.
  • New pedestrian path between Namur and Farmer Streets.
