Hid­den gems in­clude river walks

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News - Aaron Cor­lett

EUGENIE Stock­mann is pas­sion­ate about sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ments and hid­den gems in the Town of Vic­to­ria Park.

The Lath­lain res­i­dent has cre­ated two sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ments in her sub­urb as a founder of The Green Swing.

“The con­cept was to cre­ate bet­ter in­fill; we looked at a stan­dard quar­ter-acre block and asked how can we do bet­ter,” she said.

“The vi­sion was for more green space, a sense of com­mu­nity and to en­cour­age cre­ativ­ity.”

Mrs Stock­mann said there was a lot to love about liv­ing in the Town.

“Al­bany High­way is some­thing unique in Perth; to have some­thing that is busy seven days per week is amaz­ing – there aren’t many places like that,” she said.

“There are lots of hid­den gems here. It’s a bit work­ing class and not as posh as some other places but the com­mu­nity is amaz­ing.”

Mrs Stock­mann said among her favourite spots in the Town was down by the river, where she could go for walks.

“I’m al­ways sur­prised about what I can find when I go for walks around Vic­to­ria Park,” she said. It’s the peo­ple who make our com­mu­nity great, and it’s peo­ple who give life to our photo stream. Let’s cel­e­brate the fine folk who make our lives what they are by pho­tograph­ing them in the lead-up to #SnapPerth Day on Novem­ber 22. Such peo­ple are ev­ery­where it may be the hip barista who gets you go­ing in the morn­ing, the car­ing un­der-9s net­ball coach, a tal­ented street-cor­ner busker or even a celebrity you were lucky enough to score a selfie with.

#SnapPerth is all about cel­e­brat­ing and shar­ing what we love about the city we live in, so re­mem­ber, once you snap, you have to hash­tag and share. ■ Snap the photo ■ Hash­tag #SnapPerth ■ Share on Instagram or Twit­ter
