Chevron Parkland

Chevron Parkland

Open year round, the Chevron Parkland is inspired by the Indigenous six seasons and covers 2.6 hectares of rehabilitated parkland. The Park’s landscape has been designed to provide wind and shade protection throughout the year.

Featuring six nature playgrounds catering for a range of ages, BBQ and picnic facilities and the BHP Boardwalk and Amphitheatre in the west, Chevron Parkland will entertain visitors of all ages and sizes.

BHP Boardwalk and Amphitheatre

Spanning 200 metres, the BHP Boardwalk winds through the Chevron Parkland and connects the Matagarup Bridge with the Northern Oval.

Along the route, Park visitors will discover information about the historical nature of the Burswood peninsula and the role and importance of Aboriginal culture – not only at this site, but more broadly across Western Australia.

The BHP Amphitheatre provides sloped, grass seating for about 1,000 people and is expected to host a range of events including outdoor movies, children’s plays and concerts, all with a spectacular view of the Swan River and Perth CBD.

Stadium Park Art

Stadium Park Art

Optus Stadium and the surrounding Stadium Park incorporates several permanent artworks.

The pieces celebrate Western Australia’s indigenous culture, landscape, history and community while responding to the themes of people, land and sport.

Read more about each individual artwork piece.


Jonathan Tarry’s Convergence evokes the layers of ecological confluence and cultural heritage that culminate at the site of Optus Stadium.

The fluid qualities of the Swan River correspond to the fearless energy of the game, reflected in the curvilinear forms that invite fans to explore, interact and play, becoming part of the artwork, the site and the game.

Crowds of fans are mirrored in the silver surface of these forms, merging with the environment.

The Wandering

The Wandering

International artist, Chris Drury, is the creator of The Wandering – a 190 metre long rock formation, which uses 460 tonnes of Toodyay and Donnybrook stone.

Inspired by the flow of the Swan River and its location in Stadium Park, in the northern section of Stadium Park in proximity to the Windan Bridge and the Northern Oval, Drury created this piece to be living art with Indigenous drought-resistant plants incorporated into the design, binding the structure together.

Waanginy Boorna – Message Stick

Well-known Western Australian Aboriginal artist, Barry McGuire created two 4.2m cast bronze message sticks, which are located in the north-west and south-west of Stadium Park – book ending the 200 metre BHP Board­walk.

Message sticks have traditionally been used to bring people together in one place and the angle of the mes­sage sticks reflects the idea of passing from one hand to another.

Each message stick sits on top of a concrete plinth and has in built technology that will allow them to be show­cased during the day and lit up at night.
