The City of Subiaco offers incentives and assistance for owners of heritage properties, including a heritage advisory service and heritage grants.
Subiaco is a unique, popular and welcoming place. We celebrate our rich history, while embracing the diversity and vitality of the present.
Our public spaces and diverse local businesses contribute to a happy lifestyle for all.
The full vision, and how it guides City operations, is detailed in the Strategic Community Plan.
The City of Subiaco has many parks, gardens and reserves available for casual social use. A bond system protects the condition of these spaces.
Passive parks and reserves are public open spaces and are under the care, control, and management of the City. The City aims to make passive recreational areas available to the widest range of local community groups and individuals on an equitable basis.
Organised groups may reserve an area of passive recreational space to hold a social event by booking with the City.
If you are looking to book Rosalie Park or Subiaco Oval, please visit the Sporting Facilities page.
A small group (generally less than 30 people) partaking in ‘passive pursuits’ is considered a social gathering and falls outside the operational guidelines of the City’s Use of Passive Recreational Areas Policy.
A larger group of 30 or more people is considered an organised activity and will be subject to the operational guidelines of the policy.
For applications to be assessed and approved, please address the following criteria:
• applications are to be made by the event organiser
• applications must include the City's standard event booking form, completed and signed by the applicant
• any permits necessary for the consumption of alcohol are to be forwarded with the park booking form
• an annotated map of the area to be used within the park is to be included with the park booking form
• a risk assessment will be carried out to determine the appropriate bond amount to be charged.
Applicants must pay the non-refundable booking fee and the fully refundable bond before the booking is confirmed in writing.
Following the event, a site assessment is carried out to ensure all conditions on the event permit have been complied with and the park or reserve is not damaged. If an event causes damage to the park or reserve, costs to rectify the damage are deducted from the bond.
When all conditions have been met the bond is refunded by electronic funds transfer. For more information, please see the City’s terms and conditions of use of parks and reserves.
Each application has an administration fee, and each event booked is subject to a fully refundable bond. The minimum park booking fee is $120 and the minimum bond amount is $400. The final park booking fee and bond amount are calculated using risk assessment criteria provided in the park booking form.
For more information, please see the City’s schedule of Fees and Charges for 2021/2022.
