Hillview Park Upgrade
Hillview Park is getting a makeover! Learn more here
Thanks to the RAC’s Reconnect WA program, as well as State and Australian Government funding, we’re working to create a fun, vibrant and functional space at the Hillview Hub for you to play, relax and come together.
Hillview Park will include a new nature play space, which will be built with accessible equipment options for kids to play and explore.
Other exciting features include a multi-sport hardcourt, outdoor fitness equipment, tables and seating, a drink fountain and additional on-street parking for visitors, with potential for food truck events.
The Hillview Parks and Streetscapes project is being delivered in partnership with the RAC (WA), through its Reconnect WA initiative, which aims to create vibrant streets and public spaces for Western Australians to interact and connect with each other.
Hillview Park will be the first element to be completed as part of the exciting new Hillview Hub, including the Hillview Intercultural Community Centre and improvements to the surrounding streets.
Construction for the park commenced in April and is expected to be completed in October 2021.
There will be no access to the park during this time, however, nearby open spaces available in Bentley include Sill Park, Bunning Park, and Page Park.
We’re proud to be working with the RAC, through its Reconnect WA initiative for their contribution towards helping the City bring this exciting project to life.
