30 August 2019 5:30 PM

The City of Kalamunda’s Alan Anderson Park, located on Lawnbrook Road East in Walliston, has officially reopened after extensive rehabilitation.

Mayor John Giardina said the fence surrounding the park had been removed allowing community full access to the previously restricted area.

“It’s deeply encouraging to see the Alan Anderson Park restoration completed after many years,” 

“Our goal was to provide the community with this much loved space and I am delighted we delivered on our promise.”

“The Community was strong in their view they wanted their park restored and improved for now and future generations to enjoy”

“The site is home to a new playground, which I am sure local families will enjoy, just in time for Father’s day.”

“The Community showcased their passion for the site, when it was initially closed for remediation to take place, citing their enjoyment in hosting family picnics on the grass, having BBQs and enjoying the nearby walk trails.”

Site restoration was announced in 2016 with preliminary work starting in April 2018. Capping commenced in May 2018 with earthworks completed in July 2018. Site revegetation kicked off in August 2018 with mid-2019 forecast for reopening.

The park, deemed Public Open Space, is subject to an ongoing Site Management Plan. The site has officially been reclassified by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) upon advice from the Department of Health (DoH).
