Work begins on new Gosnells Town Square

The ‘heart’ of the City of Gosnells will be transformed into a vibrant meeting place, as work begins this month to revitalise the Gosnells Town Square.

After several months of planning, the City officially began construction on Tuesday 15 September to provide a more usable, safe and friendly community space.

Mayor David Goode said the Gosnells Town Square Revitalisation Project would make the area more inviting for the community, providing a more welcoming environment to walk through or spend time.

A key component of the project is to provide better access from Albany Highway by removing a retaining wall that currently separates the road from the square.

“This will really open up the square, where there will be a new central lawn and an innovative ‘fogging’ feature with lights and sound, to create a focal point and play space,” he said.

“New planter boxes will be built around the retained London Plane trees to provide casual, shaded seating areas, along with new energy-efficient lighting and brightly coloured furniture, public art and landscaping.

“We’ll be using locally sourced granite boulders from the Holcim Australia quarry as part of the design and new paving will ensure the finished town square is universally accessible.

“Once complete early next year, the new-look Gosnells Town Square will also be a great new space for small community events.”

Mayor Goode said the adjacent temporary ‘gravel’ car park would be asphalted and would remain as a car park until the land was developed.

In the meantime, the Knowledge Centre library at the Agonis building and other nearby businesses and services will remain open during the redevelopment period.
