GO Edwards Park is a prestigious passive park bounded by Great Eastern Highway, Burswood Road and Craig Street within the Town of Victoria Park. It comprises 10.37 hectares of high quality parkland containing many stately mature trees, open turf, playground and a rehabilitated wetland area. The reserve is a popular destination and is frequently booked for weddings and functions.
In 2011, the Town engaged AECOM to undertake a Water Quality Improvement Plan (WQIP) for the lake and a landscape concept plan to enhance the parkland. In 2015, the Town commissioned AECOM to undertake the detailed development design and staging plan for the area based on the concept plan and WQIP. The development was broken into five separable portion areas proposed for construction over a five year period.
The first four stages have seen a number of upgrades, including significant landscaping, path constructions and upgrades, the installation of picnic facilities and the creation of an interactive, site sensitive nature based play area.
Stage 4 and 5 works are scheduled to commence in the 2020/2021 financial year.
