    Carrington park opening

    The Park has been re-born after six months of works to rejuvenate the area, taking into account the park is used by both children and as a dog exercise area.

    To celebrate the re-launch, the City of Nedlands provided a free sausage sizzle and games for kids and dogs on October 12, capped off by a ceremonial tree planting by Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins.

    Enjoy the new upgrade and thank you for your patience while this work was being undertaken.
