Project Overview

Bridgetown’s River Foreshore Park spans 13 hectares at the southern entry point to Bridgetown where the Brockman and South Western Highways intersect. The proposed upgrade of this precinct is aimed at restoring environmental ecosystems, upgrading deteriorated infrastructure for residents and tourists while increasing access to the beautiful Blackwood River, walk trails, picnic areas and existing art trail. Interpretative signage will guide trail users through nature and history.

Key Outcomes

  • Complete refurbishment of a key heritage walk trail (Rectory Walk) close to town including addition of boardwalk feature
  • Inclusion of interpretive signage
  • New (universal access design) path providing linkages to Bridgetown CBD, from River Foreshore Park including access to art trail and heritage walk
  • New shelter/viewing platform providing connection between the river, art trail and heritage walk
  • Upgrading the iconic River Trail – trail surface, drainage and rock pitch swales
  • Installation of drainage and rock pitch swale to ensure all year round use of the heritage walk trail and environmental enhancement/protection of wetland area
