Landmark Civic Gardens project underway
The Town will be creating a magnificent new entrance to our Town in the form of a civic garden on the BIC Reserve in front of the Bassendean Memorial Library, with its centrepiece being the Town's War Memorial.
This landmark decision was reached with the support of the local Eastern Regional Sub-branch of the RSL, and after community consultation.
The relocation of the War Memorial will provide a focal point for the new civic gardens, better facilities, and access for people with disabilities.
The overall concept has been very well thought through, solves all of the current site's issues, and will allow the War Memorial to be restored to its former 1920s glory.
The project will provide a true pride-of-place for our Bassendean War Memorial in the surrounds of a beautiful civic garden.
Once complete, this is a project our community can be very proud of.
