Woodville gets spruced

Check out the draft Landscape Plan to revitalise the western end of Woodville Reserve and let us know your thoughts!

The aim is to create a more inviting and usable recreation space for the community.

The draft Landscape Plan is focused on smaller scale elements, increasing useable public open space and tree canopy coverage.

We want to add elements that can be easily incorporated into the proposed future Master Plan for the area.

Why are we giving Woodville a spruce?

The draft Landscape Plan has been designed to:

  • Create a more inviting, accessible and useable public open space;
  • Improve connectivity and wayfinding across the site;
  • Provide additional nature-based recreation opportunities and nature play elements;
  • Provide additional tree canopy and natural eco-zoning/vegetation; and
  • Ensure site improvements are considered, futureproofed, and able to integrate with any future Master Plan.

What is being proposed in the draft Landscape Plan?

The draft Landscape Plan proposes to increase useable public open space and incorporate the following key elements:

  • Increased planting and canopy cover
  • Removal or enhancement of existing site fencing
  • Extension of existing lawn area
  • Extension of public open space to incorporate gazebo, seating and planters
  • Installation of reticulation to the site

You can read the draft Landscape Plan in the Documents section on this page.

You can also access the City's Public Open Space Strategy for more context.

How we got here

The Woodville Reserve Master Plan has been paused while other informing strategies and plans are finalised (such as the Sport & Recreation Facilities Plan and Asset Management & Sustainability Strategy).

In the interim the Landscape Plan will help create more usable public open space in North Perth by converting the north west area of Woodville Reserve to passive parkland in line with the draft Landscape Plan.

The Landscape Plan will address an identified lack of public open space in the area inline with the City's Public Open Space Strategy, and also increase canopy coverage which aligns with the City’s Greening Plan.
