Latest update – Jinan Gardens

Categories:

At its May 2019 meeting, the Joondalup Council resolved in part to support the development of the Jinan Garden as a standalone project.

The Jinan Garden design would take inspiration from the Baotou Springs Park in Jinan, incorporating a wide variety of traditional Chinese garden elements including a pavilion overlooking a formal pond to a waterfall and miniature mountain-scape beyond.

It would also include an entry gateway and garden wall, covered walkway, water fountains, and a flat bridge over the pond.

Centrally located between the City Centre and the Learning Precinct, and including a gathering area for up to 70 people, it will be another attraction in the Joondalup City Centre and a wonderful asset for local community and visitors to the region to enjoy.

At its June 2019 meeting, the Joondalup Council resolved to adopt the Jinan Garden Project as part of the Five Year Capital Works Program.

The Chief Executive Officer will present a status report on the Jinan Garden Project to the Major Projects and Finance Committee at a later date.

Funding

Total funding for the project was set aside in reserve several years ago and was sourced from the sale of surplus land owned by the City, not from rates revenue.
