Queens Park Open Space Masterplan

Queens Park Open Space


The Queens Park Open Space Master Plan was endorsed by Council in November 2020.


The Plan is a vision for the future and a number of key principles were developed with the community to inform the overall plan including;

  • Nature Play; play is interwoven with nature, both in form and function, without negatively impacting it.
  • Returning the links; the masterplan brings back key biodiversity linkages across the site
  • Protecting the bush; managing impacts to the native bush whilst helping the community to learn and understand its vulnerability
  • Creating connections; clarifying where people can go in the site through formalised paths connecting across the site
  • Building community; making space for the community to grow and use the space as a way to come together both formally and informally

This master planning project begun shortly after Premier Mark McGowan announced that the State Government would match the Commonwealth contribution of $16.25 million to enable the full development of the State Football Centre at Queens Park Open Space.

Whilst the State Football Centre is fully funded through Federal and State commitments, the remaining community focused areas and public realm elements outside the State Football Centre are captured within the Queens Park Open Space Master Plan and will be delivered by the City of Canning.

This Master Plan was developed with the input of our community between June and November 2020. Our conversations have helped us understand how you – the community - use the areas and what opportunities you think we should implement to provide the best open space possible. Thank you to everyone who contributed their ideas and feedback. The Plan intends to revitalise the area and create a space for the community to enjoy.

The next stage of the project is the preparation of detailed designs, taking the project from a concept to a construction ready project. There will be opportunities to provide input on these designs, please subscribe via the Stay Informed section on this page to receive updates.

    The City are working with Landscape Architects, Josh Byrne & Associated to prepare the detailed designs for the Queens Park Open Space Masterplan.

    As a masterplan is a concept, we need the detailed designs to take the project from this concept to a construction ready project. This will show the types of materials, size and detail of each element within the plan.

    There will be opportunities to provide input on these designs in early 2022, please subscribe via the Stay Informed section on this page to receive updates.
