Media Release 14 January 2013
South Perth Foreshore
The City of South Perth will host a series of coffee cart chats to get the conversation started about the future activities and development residents and visitors want to see along the beautiful South Perth Foreshore and Sir James Mitchell Park.

City staff and consultants will set up at places to stop, including a coffee cart, to gather thoughts and ideas from park users and passers-by about the South Perth Foreshore. The coffee cart chats will take place on Wednesday, 23 January during the school holidays and on Saturday, 9 February at Sir James Mitchell Park and The Esplanade.

The coffee carts will set up at the three locations, the Coode Street playground (8-10am and 3.30-5.30pm), the bike shelter west of Ellam Street (7-9am and 4-6pm) and the Mends Street jetty pavilion and beach (7.30-10am and 4-6pm).

The City will collaborate with stakeholders and the community over the coming months to develop the vision for the South Perth Foreshore. 

South Perth Foreshore extends for approximately four kilometres along the Swan River, from the Narrows Bridge to Ellam Street. The Mends Street Jetty, linking with the Mends Street and the Perth Zoo, is a key precinct of the foreshore; as are Mill Point Reserve and the Old Mill, Coode Street Jetty and surrounds, and the Ellam Street Precinct.

City of South Perth Deputy Mayor Kevin Trent encourages park visitors to get involved.

“The City invites all residents and visitors to the South Perth Foreshore to join in the conversation and help create a vision for the foreshore.

“We want to hear all kinds of ideas to make the South Perth Foreshore a special place in South Perth and an iconic destination of greater Perth.

“With its unique location and aspect, the South Perth Foreshore could provide many possibilities such as night markets, tango lessons, live music, cultural events and new play areas such as a nature playground, to name a few.

“Come along to one of the coffee cart chats and get involved in a conversation about creating a vibrant, active South Perth Foreshore.” said Deputy Mayor Kevin Trent.
