Pathway updates – temporary impacts on access

From Tuesday 5 September, additional areas will be gradually fenced off to facilitate construction of the new Principal Shared Pathway (PSP) through Burswood Park.

The initial works will be undertaken in the small riverside car park on Camfield Drive, adjacent to the children’s playground and Bilya Café. This car park will be reduced by half its size for the next five weeks to enable underground services to be relocated, before being fully closed later this year and early next year as the main construction work is completed.

Visitors to Burswood Park will be able to access the playgrounds and Bilya Café by parking on the other side of Camfield Drive (on the Crown Perth side) and then use the road crossings to reach the river.

Parking will always be available in this larger car park, except during Optus stadium major event days, which are now fewer in the spring and summer months following completion of the AFL season.

Similarly, fencing will be erected along the Resort Drive cark park (already closed) in the coming weeks as part of preparation for construction in this area. While the fencing will delineate the construction site, visitors will still be able to access the parklands, barbecues and public toilets in this area.

Ultimately, fencing will extend along most of Resort Drive and Camfield Drive and the existing riverside path through to the WA Recreational Water Sports Association, as a safety precaution for the public and to protect the construction works.

Burswood Park will continue to update visitors and our regular users of the parklands on progress of the construction works and any temporary impacts that may occur. The complexity of locating and moving underground services means that our rescheduled timeline for finishing this important pathway is now February 2024.

Information will be available on this website, or you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
