Forrest Place Redevelopment
Transforming Forrest Place
Forrest Place - the city’s most popular meeting place - is being redeveloped to create a safe and stimulating central area for people to use at all times of the day.
Stage 3B commenced on Monday 26 March 2012 and includes construction of an interactive water sculpture, a new City of Perth information kiosk, and new alfresco and seating areas; paving to the outer and sunken areas of Forrest Place; planting of new trees and provision of removable umbrellas to the sunken area. This work is expected to be completed by the end of October 2012.
The redevelopment has been undertaken in stages to minimise the impact on pedestrians, motorists and retailers. To date the following stages have been completed:
Stage 1 - the removal of redundant overhead pedestrian walkways.
Stage 2 - the enhancement of Wellington Street and the Perth station forecourt, construction of a new stage and changeroom/toilet facilities, and installation of Grown Your Own.
Stage 3A - demolition of the old stage and water feature (near the Myers entrance), installation of new multifunctional poles and repaving along the Forrest Chase edge of Forrest Place.

When complete, the new-look Forrest Place will include
- a permanent stage area to host events in the heart of the CBD.

- wider pavement along Wellington Street;
- a more spacious and less cluttered public space;
