A ceremony was held in Kings Park recently to recognise the refurbishment of the much-loved Rotary Wishing Well on Fraser Avenue.

The Rotary Wishing Well was first constructed in Kings Park in 1949, and is reflective of a number of other wishing wells constructed around Western Australia in this era. The wrought iron scroll work above the stone well had deteriorated over time, and there was some thought given to possibly updating the original design to reflect a more contemporary artwork.

'It is important that we conserve the heritage values in this high profile area of Kings Park, and I know many people have traditionally had wedding photos taken at the Rotary Wishing well with the city skyline as a backdrop. I am sure frequent visitors will be pleased to see the original design replicated', Chief Executive Officer Mark Webb said.

In consultation with heritage Architect Phil Griffiths, and out of respect for cultural heritage values, the Rotary Wishing Well has been reconstructed in its original form using the original bell as a centre piece. The wrought iron scroll work has been recreated by Antonio Battistessa and the new structure was installed on 22 August by Rotary Club of Perth and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority.

'Rotary was excited to be part of this project, as many of us remember making a special wish here as children. The magic of Kings Park just seems to continue, and Rotary are proud to play a part in refurbishing this little part of Kings Park history', said Mr Ulrich Kunzmann of Rotary Club of Perth.
