Car park 8 will be closed this weekend (24-25 October) to cater for the Telethon fundraising activations at Crown Perth. However, no road closures will be in effect across the peninsula. A map displaying alternative car parks can be found here. It is recommended you travel to the Telethon Family Day at Optus Stadium on Sunday 25 October via public transport.
Park patrons are advised that fencing along the east and west sides of Camfield Drive is now in place to assist with access to Optus Stadium on major event days. Please note that during events, the only access to Optus Stadium from Crown Resorts will be via the crossover on Camfield Drive at the Watersports Association/Burswood on Swan, and the crossover on the western end of Roger Mackay Drive.
In the interests of not disturbing the re-vegetation projects on both sides of Camfield Drive, please do not attempt to climb the fences, follow the signs, stick to the paths and stay off the garden beds.
With the Matagarup Bridge Climb and Zip-line officially coming to Burswood peninsula, Main Roads is currently undertaking infrastructure works to install the Skyview platform in the central bridge arches, a zip-line platform and cables midway up the arches, plus the zip-line landing platform within Burswood Park.
Entry to the Camfield car park and in the area between the car park and the bridge including the sensory playground will be restricted between 6am and 11am each week day. No works will occur on event days.
From mid-July, walkway access on Matagarup Bridge will be reduced from nine to three metres using temporary protected walkways. The walkways are the same as those used during arch painting when the bridge was constructed and resemble a tunnel.
Full closures will occur from 9am to 1pm on weekdays until the end of October while steel and glass is lifted from the bridge deck into the bridge arches.
For the latest information, be sure to check out Main Roads.
All Burswood Park patrons are advised that car parking at two of Burswood Park’s six car parking areas, being the car parks adjacent to the children’s playground and to the Telethon Community Cinemas on Resort Drive, will be restricted to a maximum period of four (4) hours from 8am to 4pm on WEEKDAYS only.
The parking restrictions are necessary to provide safe, efficient and equitable access for all park visitors, and to reduce the frequency of all-day parking often used by city commuters.
Parking within the park will remain free-of-charge. Parking signs (marked 4P) will be in place to remind park patrons of the parking conditions.
The restrictions will be enforced under Burswood Park Board parking by-laws. Burswood Park Board reserves the right to issue infringements for cars parked longer than the maximum period.
