In November 2018 the City of Canning was awarded a Smart Cities Grant to redevelop the Wharf Street detention basin into a ‘Smart Park’ – the Wharf Street Next Generation Community Park.

Although the basin, which is owned by the Water Corporation, will still need to provide its drainage function, the project proposes to create a safe space for the community to enjoy.

The City is hosting a Community Workshop to better understand how people would like to use this space. The workshop will be held on Tuesday 12th March from 6.30-8.30pm. If you would like to attend this workshop, please register through the City’s “Your Say” website. You can also click here to fill out a survey or here for more information.
