ECU officially opened the Edith Cowan Reserve at Churchlands Green on Saturday, 30 October with a special event, entitled Tunes Amongst the Trees, attended by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox, and members of the Churchlands community.
The event provided a chance for the local community to visit the Churchlands Green residential community, formerly ECU’s Churchlands Campus, and also celebrate the launch of the Edith Cowan Reserve.
The Reserve was officially opened by Professor Cox, who commented on the success of Churchlands Green and credited developers for utilising both the original amphitheatre and natural surroundings that characterised the former ECU campus.
“The Edith Cowan Reserve is an impressive feature of the development, and is certainly destined to become a focal point for the local community,” he said.
Following the opening ceremony the community enjoyed performances by local students from the Churchlands Primary School Hot Notes and VOICE choir and the Newman College Brass Quartet and Saxophone Ensemble.
The event concluded with a performance by WAAPA’s contemporary band.
