The Kwinana Loop Trail has undergone a makeover that was recently celebrated in front of a captivated audience.
The project came together through close collaboration with Kwinana’s Aboriginal Community to identify signs acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land Kwinana sits on, ancient culture and more recent history.
Twelve signs and two new rest stops featuring Aboriginal artist Cheryl Martin’s work have been installed in various locations along the 21 kilometre trail.
The launch event included a Welcome to Country by local Elder Theresa Walley and a speech by City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams who discussed the project and future aims of improving the trail.
“Improvements to the Kwinana Loop Trail were identified through the City’s Strategic Community Plan,” said Mayor Adams.
“I think you’ll agree, the Kwinana Loop Trail is now even more enticing than ever.”
The City of Kwinana implemented upgrades to the Kwinana Loop Trail to the value of $80,000. The upgrade was supported by $38,000 in funding from Lotterywest.
