Situated on the Swan River foreshore alongside the Optus Stadium, the Chevron Parkland includes 2.6 hectares of rehabilitated parklands and nature playgrounds for children, creating a memorable play experience in a unique natural environment.
Officially opened as part of the Optus Stadium Open Day in January 2018, the Chevron Parkland is free for everyone to enjoy all year long.
The new Chevron Parkland located in the Stadium Park can be enjoyed by the community 365 days a year.
The Chevron Parkland offers the community access to a new rehabilitated parkland and nature playgrounds, BBQ areas, shelters and picnic facilities set around the river-fed lake. Playground areas for children include sand pits, climbing and balancing challenges, tunnelling and burrowing, and look outs.
Ten permanent three-dimensional artworks by eight emerging West Australian Noongar artists and teams are featured throughout the Chevron Parkland.
We have a long history of environmental stewardship at Chevron. Not only is the new parkland a rehabilitated area, it provides a nature-based educational space for young people to connect to WA’s unique environment and Aboriginal culture.
The planting of more than 160,000 seedlings and 500 mature trees was undertaken in the Chevron Parkland, and the design of the parkland translates and expresses the Whadjuk Noongar six seasons across the play areas.
