NORTH Perth Common is officially opening for business this weekend.

There will be an opening event on Saturday, June 15, from 3pm to 6pm.

Head down for a welcome to country and smoking ceremony, along with free activities for the kids, local music, food and live art painting.

City of Vincent Mayor Emma Cole said at the start of construction in January that the location on the corner of Fitzgerald and View Streets was set to become an iconic meeting place.

“With more trees, seating, a dramatic artwork and space to hold events, it will bring people to North Perth and give a great boost to our local businesses,” she said.

“A striking circular lighting installation will feature overhead and provide light to the area, and project images and video into the space after dark.”

The lighting installation will be switched on by Mayor Cole and Perth MLA John Carey at 5pm when the sun goes down.
