Our Park, Our Place: Gabriel Place Reserve, Kewdale

The Our Park, Our Place project is a collaborative project aimed at reconnecting people with nature in their neighbourhood. The Our Park, Our Place project is a collaborative project between the City of Belmont, Greening Australia, The Behaviour Change Collaborative and Lotterywest. The project aims to reconnect people with nature in their neighbourhood and has a strong focus on working together with local governments in some of Perth’s most heat-stressed council areas. This project has a strong focus on working together with local governments in some of Perth’s most heat-stressed council areas to enhance the well-being of residents. One park (on the traditional lands of the Noongar people) has been chosen in each of the local government areas of Bassendean, Bayswater, Belmont and Canning. At each of these parks we will work with local residents to create cool green places through introducing more trees plantings to enhance existing green spaces.

In the City of Belmont, Gabriel Place Reserve was selected for this project. Gabriel Place Reserve, located between Gabriel Place, Acton Ave and Gabriel Street in Kewdale, has been selected as a park improvement opportunity. Through community collaboration, it is proposed to enhance Gabriel Place with additional trees, landscaping and other greenspace elements. This will contribute to increased canopy cover and provide a community informed greenspace.

Over the course of the project, Greening Australia will organise workshops for you to learn more about the unique WA environment and how take action to create a greener and more connected neighbourhood.

Please visit the Greening Australia Our Park, Our Place project website for more information about the project overall.

To be part of the ongoing project, including involvement in educational workshops and planting days, please register so we can keep you up to date on event days and times.

How can you get involved now?

Community engagement and hands-on involvement underpin this project.

To assist with developing a design for the park, please follow the tabs below. Be sure to share your ideas and populate the interactive map to tell us about areas you currently use, areas that you’d like to see improved, and areas you think would be good to introduce more trees and other plants. You might also have some ideas about where to it might be possible to make new paths, or maybe create a creative space for people, local animals and plants.

Check out the Sketch Map in the Print Pack for some inspiration. You can download these pages and use the Sketch Map to draw your ideas and make suggestions, before scanning or photographing it and sending it back to us via the Upload Your Ideas tab. You might like to grab the kids, head over to the park, and find out what ideas they might have!

We’d also like to know more what you think about local green spaces. Completing the survey (You and Your Park) will help us understand what you think is important and will help with planning future spaces for your community.

Consultation for the map, survey and ideas will close on the 14th of August 2020.
