Construction of a new pavilion and small stage at Kings Park and Botanic Garden’s Exhibition Lawn will begin next month.

Work on the new pavilion set to begin.

The Exhibition Ground lawn is located on the north-eastern side of the park within the popular Fraser Avenue precinct, and is surrounded by marri, tuart and pines trees. 

The new development will be wheelchair-accessible and will be suitable for small concerts or shows, outdoor cinema, markets, weddings, and small sporting events or fitness classes. 

Part of the Exhibition Ground lawn will be closed from early May for contractor Landscape Australia Construction to begin site preparation and building works. It is expected works will be completed by mid-August 2021. 

The work is part of the State Government’s $5.5 million WA Recovery Plan announced in July 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
