Wanju Welcome Queens Park is the City’s revitalisation action plan to create a neighbourhood of welcome in which everyone feels like they belong, can be themselves and take ownership for shaping the neighbourhood story.

The project seeks to welcome (“Wanju”) everyone to Queens Park and to celebrate the diversity of our community and nurture connections between people. It’s about working together to breathe new life and vitality into the neighbourhood to ensure it is safe, vibrant and accessible.

Backstory

Queens Park is one of Canning’s most diverse neighbourhoods with 60% of residents born overseas.

The neighbourhood is rich in community infrastructure, public open space and cultural assets however community groups don’t collaborate and many people feel they lack the capacity to help improve and activate the local area.

The objective of the Queens Park Revitalisation Plan is to revitalise the Queens Park neighbourhood in partnership with community over the short term (three years) and beyond. The City, in collaboration with community, intends to imbue the neighbourhood with new life and vitality, harnessing local assets,and responding to identified community need.

A core component of our objective is to ensure that the community is: empowered to use facilities, run events, operate local businesses and develop ideas for improving the neighbourhood; and to collaborate on City and State led projects.

The City seeks to address the historical inequity of interest and investment in the Queens Park neighbourhood and deliver a number of projects and business as usual activities that will benefit the local community.

Get Involved

A great neighbourhood has a strong identity that builds connectedness in its community. Our relationship to a neighbourhood is strengthened when we're invested in its past, present and potential stories.

Get involved and help shape a neighbourhood of welcome.

Please join us at our welcome events, get involved with one of our welcome teams or share your Queens Park Neighbourhood Story.

You can also email welcome@canning.wa.gov.au directly.
