Chevron Australia has become the second Perth Stadium commercial partner, with the riverside location within the sports precinct to be known as the Chevron Parkland.
Australian premier Colin Barnett and sport and recreation minister Mia Davies joined representatives from Chevron Australia and Westadium to plant the first bushes in the Chevron Parkland.
“The Chevron Parkland covers 2.6ha of rehabilitated parkland and will include six nature play areas along the Swan River foreshore,” said Barnett. “The area will also include a number of permanent artworks by Western Australian Aboriginal artists that can be enjoyed by families and visitors all year long.
“The parkland design was developed with input from the Whadjuk community and is inspired by the Noongar six seasons, and I thank the Whadjuk people for their involvement.
“I also acknowledge and thank Chevron for their partnership in this project, which will deliver a rehabilitated parkland for West Australians to discover and enjoy.”
The involvement of Chevron Australia at Perth Stadium was facilitated by the Westadium consortium, which is responsible for the design, build, partial finance and maintenance elements of the Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct.
