Forrestfield Shared Path Art Treatment

Painting our streets alive with Positive Stories of Forrestfield!

Improved shared path network

The City of Kalamunda was awarded funding under the Western Australian Bicycle Network Grants (WABN) Program to design and deliver improved bicycle routes in Forrestfield.

The new red asphalt shared paths will be 3.0 metres wide and will connect our residential neighbourhood with active transport. The proposed shared path runs from Hale Road (at Forrestfield Shopping Centre), along Hibiscus Drive (past Woodlupine Primary School), onto Bougainvillea Avenue, and ending at Dawson Avenue (Dawson Park Primary School) - and return.

As part of this full proposal, local residents and property owners, the schools, and nearby shopping centre management were surveyed for their views on the proposed route. Nine responses were received in favour of the proposal, with no objections. Notable comments covered how this will help the community be more active, the benefits for students, and aim to reduce the potential for antisocial behaviour at the southern end.

Workshops with students

As part of the design process the City of Kalamunda, in partnership with The Place Team (Town Team Movement), facilitated workshops with students from Woodlupine Primary School and Dawson Park Primary School, engaging them to develop a place narrative which will help inform the development of an artists brief and design of artworks.

Youth Workshops | The students were asked to draw artworks of their favourite Forrestfield values and experiences. As a result, five themes (see images above) were identified as inspirations for the future artworks.


We asked you what you thought.

An interactive online survey and visual design representation showcasing the results of Stage 1 was made available between 1 – 18 December 2020. A drop-in session was also organised to ask questions and fill out the survey in-person at the Forrestfield Shopping Centre on 19 December from 1:30 - 3:30pm.

The purpose of the survey was to comment on the proposed impact of decorated shared paths, prioritise and rank the community values and initial design ideas.

The results of the survey will inform the artistic brief to "Paint' our streets alive".
