The Stadium will be situated within a parkland setting with public open space comprising of a Community Oval, BBQ / picnic areas, playgrounds and a pedestrian path network that links the Precinct to a variety of public transport options.
The design of the Sports Precinct surrounding the Stadium is inspired by Dreamtime stories and the connection with the Swan River, and it will have three distinct recreational spaces encouraging year round use.
A Community Arbour, linking the new six-platform Stadium Station to the river, will represent Noongar Community stories.
The western section of the Precinct will be home to an amphitheatre, two children’s playgrounds, picnic areas and a boardwalk. The Community Oval in the north will be available for public use on non-event days, as well as providing event-day parking.
