Community Engagement and Placemaking

Riseley Street Road Art Project

The soon to be completed major road art project is set to further define this busy precinct as a meeting place for community. Designed by leading WA artist Joanna Brown, this iconic and emblematic work will draw people in to the area and connect them to both the urban and natural environment. This major work will stretch from Canning Hwy to the Wilcock St roundabout. Check out our Projects and Works page for updates.

Look out for installation in early 2022 and a planned community celebration shortly after!

Riseley Centre Place Brand

We worked with the Rise Up Riseley Town Team, a Whadjuk Elder, local businesses and the wider community to develop a Riseley Centre place brand. Find out more about this project on our Melville Talks page.

Riseley Parklet - Officially named Mandjar wer Nyin

As part of our work implementing the Riseley Placemaking Action Plan, we installed a parklet on Kearns Crescent outside of C15 Espresso on Thursday, 16 December 2021.

A parklet is a small, temporary and moveable public space located in existing carbays and is designed to be a welcoming space for all the community to sit, stay, enjoy and connect with others.

It features the colours and design of the Riseley Centre branding as well as native plantings.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a name suggestion through Melville Talks to name the Riseley Parklet.

The 57 name submissions were narrowed down to 3 final selections which the community voted on, and we can now announce that the chosen name is “Mandjar wer Nyin” which means to meet and sit In Whadjuk language. It is a combination of two Whadjuk language names submitted by community members which has been approved by elder Aunty Marie Taylor.

The voucher winners will be contacted directly.

Feedback on the parklet is still open via Melville Talks until Thursday, 16 June 2022.
