Nurdi Park and Living Stream Concept Plan

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

The City was given the opportunity to convert part of the drainage corridor between Nurdi Park and Kalangedy Drive into a 'living stream'. The South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) has received grant funding from the Water Corporation, Perth NRM and the Swan Canning River Recovery Program for the project.

The living stream will extend into the eastern part of Nurdi Park. The City has prepared a draft Concept Plan for Nurdi Park and the living stream, and sought feedback from the community.

A ‘living stream’ is a constructed waterway that mimics a natural stream by re-shaping the banks and planting native trees, shrubs and ground covers. The stream is designed to remove pollutants from the storm water.

The draft Concept Plan considers Nurdi Park and the drainage corridor between Nurdi Park and Kalangedy Drive. The living stream component of the project is to occur from later summer 2020. Other park improvements will be implemented in a staged approach as part of future projects.

Thank you for your feedback. The public comment period for the concept plan has closed. We will provide an update on the outcome in due course.

The City recently advised residents by letter that construction works would take place in March 2020. Due to some delays the project construction has been rescheduled to May 2020 subject to weather conditions. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Agree with Carolyn - extend the landscaping/planting from Nurdi Park all the way to High Road

Like the idea of opening the park to Kalangedy Dr. A third stream crossing would further integrate the park into the streetscape, so that the stream would be less of a divider as it is now. Also an extra short paved path to the gate on Leach Hwy would be good. This is an important access route to Shelley beach and also the bus route to Bullcreek station.

Hi. Looks fantastic. The plan doesn't show but it would be good if you could continue the planting all the way to High Rd. Reduces the eye sore that so many open drains are, reduces the opportunity for people to make their way behind the houses and increases habitat for our wetland creatures.It would be great if you could do the same for other drains such as the one that runs through Glamorgan Park.
