Elizabeth Quay, a free space for all West Australians and visitors to the city to enjoy, has been officially opened by West Australia Premier Colin Barnett and Planning Minister John Day yesterday (Jan 29).
“This project fundamentally changes the face of Perth; it connects us to the Swan River and provides a huge boost to the vitality of our city,” said the Premier.
“I would like to congratulate everyone who has played a part in bringing this project to reality and in particular I’d like to acknowledge the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority and the support of the City of Perth.”
Mr Day said Elizabeth Quay was a once in a generation project that changed the physical and cultural landscape of our city.
“Together with Perth City Link and the Riverside project, Elizabeth Quay is a key part of this Government’s vision to progress Perth as an internationally competitive city for the 21st century,” he said.
“My aim for this project was to deliver a space that all West Australians can enjoy, from family friendly activities; to a place workers in the CBD can grab a bite to eat; to a unique destination you can be proud to take visitors to the State, and I believe we have achieved this.
The Premier and Minister were also joined today by BHP Billiton Iron Ore president Jimmy Wilson to open the new BHP Billiton Water Park. BHP Billiton provided $10 million for the family-friendly interactive water park, which covers almost 500 square metres.
“Elizabeth Quay has been designed as a place for all West Australians to enjoy and the BHP Billiton Water Park is a wonderful family experience for the community,” Mr Barnett said.
The Elizabeth Quay opening will be marked by three weeks of celebrations including a laser, light and water show until February 21.
