The Hillview Hub is coming!
Exciting things are happening in Bentley! We are investing in the area around Hillview Park to create an exciting place to connect, play and celebrate our diverse community.
These works will include:
• The creation of a Hillview Intercultural and Community Centre (working title for the new facility) at 1-3 Hill View Place, Bentley;
• Upgrades to Hillview Park and Fitzpatrick Park with improved play spaces and amenities; and
• Improvements to the Hill View Place streetscape, adjacent road network and parking infrastructure in the area.
Construction works will commence in April 2021 and is expected to be completed by end of November 2021. The new community facility is scheduled to open in December 2021.
The centre and its surrounds will be a place to share ideas, connect with community resources and celebrate culture, providing a safe environment for growth, development and learning.
The new Hillview Hub will be designed to appeal to a broad range of users of all ages and backgrounds, with our wonderfully diverse community at its heart.
We look forward to sharing more news about this exciting project with local residents and stakeholders.
Hillview Intercultural and Community Centre
The City of Canning is excited to announce a new project as part of the City’s vision for a welcoming and thriving City.
With more than 50% of our local population born overseas and 40% speaking a language other than English at home, the City of Canning is the most diverse local government area in WA. The Hillview Intercultural and Community Centre (working title) will be the first local government community facility of its type in the south of Perth.
The Centre will showcase Canning’s diversity and provide opportunities for the whole community to connect and learn from each other. The Centre will provide spaces that can be accessed by community groups, including multi-purpose activity rooms, a hall, computer lab and a commercial kitchen. The Centre will provide opportunities for our community to access a range of programs and services.
Based in Bentley at 1-3 Hill View Place, and with an investment of $2.5 million in the building's redevelopment, the City is working with community stakeholders to determine the service model and activation plan for the Centre.
Hillview Park Upgrade
Hillview Park is getting a makeover! We’re working to create a fun and functional space at Hillview Park for you to play, relax and come together.
Based on community feedback, a concept plan was developed for the Park and this is now ready to be delivered.
A new nature play space 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 and additional on-street parking for visitors, with potential for food truck events.
Construction for the park begins in April and is expected to be completed in August 2021. There will be no access to the park during this time. Nearby open spaces available in Bentley include Sill Park, Bunning Park, and Page Park.
Hillview Park is the first element to be completed as part of the exciting new Hillview Hub, including a new community building and improved surrounding streets.
Hillview Hub Streetscapes and Traffic Management Upgrade
The streets in the Hillview Hub vicinity are set to become more pedestrian friendly with additional parking, plenty of trees, change in road surface treatment and traffic calming measures to reduce vehicle speeds. The City will also be installing free public Wi-Fi coverage for both parks; Hillview and Fitzpatrick.
Nearby food businesses will also be able to offer alfresco dining options for customers to enjoy the fresh air while having a meal.
