A JOINT project between the City of Melville and the Department of Parks and Wildlife will see new visitor facilities installed at Bicton Baths, Point Walter and Heathcote.

Parks and Wildlife will install facilities, including wooden deck structures with seating and multi-media interpretation, at each of the selected sites. These are designed to enhance the experience for recreational users, while also communicating the natural and cultural heritage values of the Swan and Canning rivers and the surrounding foreshore.

During the installation of the interpretation facilities, access to some areas may be restricted or closed.

People who may be directly affected have been notified.

Parks and Wildlife and the City of Melville will work together to ensure minimum inconvenience to users of the areas.

Temporary signage has been installed at each of the interpretation sites providing information.

Parks and Wildlife has appointed a contractor for the installation works, with construction expected to be completed by the end of November.
