The City will call for expressions of interest from artists to design the fountain, expected to cost $100,000. The artwork is part of the City’s Central Walk enhancement project.
About $500,000 is being spent on landscaping, signage, CCTV, bins, lighting and seating in Central Walk.
Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said the improvements would attract more people to Joondalup’s city centre.
The City will also soon install a 6m by 3m billboard at Joondalup Library to display contemporary art.
