Football fever over – call for new home for parklets
Thank you to the businesses who celebrated the success of the Western Australian AFL teams and the premiership-winning Subiaco Football Club in Subiaco. The shop displays and special finals events created a vibrant town centre with football fans enjoying the free entertainment, decorations and face painting in the city's parklets.

The popular Subiaco parklets are due to be moved to new locations this month and we're calling on town centre businesses who would like to have a parklet outside their store. With Halloween and Melbourne Cup fast approaching, the city will look to activate the parklets again for these special events.
Register your interest to have a parklet installed outside your business by contacting the city's technical services team on 9387 0942.
