Mr Medina said the park was truly unique and he had tried to capture its beauty in a compilation of poetry titled Hester Park: A Gosnells Jewel.

He moved to Langford more than 26 years ago and has been active in the community since 1999, when he painted three murals and is looking to develop new community art projects.

‘I do this to tell people what a wonderful place we live in,’ he said.

‘It is important for new generations to learn about our history and the place in which we live.’

Mr Medina will donate the compilation when it is published to the community through the local libraries and City of Gosnells.

City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said the city had a proud history of providing opportunities for members of the community to take part in cultural projects.

‘It is wonderful to see the city represented in this medium,’ he said.
