Favourable view­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

RIVERVALE’S Bilya Kard Boodja Look­out has just landed a top prize for its cul­tural ties and wa­ter views.

The City of Bel­mont’s in­stal­la­tion took out the cul­tural her­itage land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture award at the 2017 WA In­sti­tute of Land­scape Ar­chi­tects Awards.

The look­out on Ta­nunda Drive was lauded for its ex­ten­sive com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, dra­matic views across the Swan River, and strong re­spect for Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture and her­itage.

It is the City’s first park with an of­fi­cially adopted Abo­rig­i­nal name. Bilya means river, kard means hill, and boodja trans­lates to land or coun­try.
