The City proudly celebrated Neighbour Day this year by asking the community to share their stories of what makes Subiaco a special place to live.
The submissions demonstrated our community are great at creating connections with their neighbours and a sense of belonging for all, and that the City really is a unique place to live.
In the category of 18 and over, one story detailed why she loves Richard Diggins Park so much, talking about how kids, parents, dog owners and picnickers alike come together at this “secret” spot which they’re more than happy to share.
Dog walking in the City seems to be an all-time favourite for younger residents, with many submissions from those aged 5 to 17 years centred on four-legged friends.
Price Street was pinpointed as the place to be for local dogs and high praise was given to businesses in Rokeby Road for providing water for Reggie on his walks out and about.
One story, in particular, demonstrated tremendous community spirit: “we help each other, for example, when my neighbour broke her hip, I helped her taking her dogs Coco and Digbo for a walk in the park – that made me happy”.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a story – it was inspiring to see how locals help each other and cherish time spent together. We really do live in a special pocket of the world.
