A vibrant residential neighbourhood, with unique architecture optimising its river setting. Claisebrook Cove draws in the Swan River, with cafes and the nearby Royal Street activity centre providing residents and visitors with a range of retail and entertainment. Sought-after community, educational and open space facilities meet growing, diverse community needs.
What we’ve heard:
- Brightening up the neighbourhood with feature lighting, making key public places and connections feel safe and comfortable for locals and visitors. Key areas include Victoria Gardens to Matagarup Bridge and Windan Bridge.
- Improving presentation of streetscapes, public paths and laneways and refreshing public art.
- A focus on improving Claisebrook Cove Jetty, infrastructure and water quality.
- Continue to work with neighbourhood groups, residents and stakeholders to support activation, events and business vitality.
