Fiona Stanley Hospital precinct road and park names
As part of the development of the Fiona Stanley Hospital project, 12 new roads and two new conservation parks are being created in the precinct.
These new roads and parks have been named after eminent Western Australians from health and Aboriginal names for local sites, medicinal plants and traditional healing methods, recognising the area’s Aboriginal culture and its location on traditional Noongar land.
The themes were suggested during a consultation process involving site neighbours, health organisations, health professional associations, community representatives and the Cities of Melville and Cockburn.
Nine of the roads will be public roads managed by City of Melville and many will be major thoroughfares used by thousands of members of the community on a daily basis. Two of the roads will be private roads and one will be a pedestrian walkway.
The 12 roads in the precinct are:
- Barry Marshall Parade
- Bedbrook Row (private road)
- Fiona Wood Road
- Jennalup Street
- Koorin Crescent
- MacKellar Walk (pedestrian walkway)
- Marri Close
- Quandong Square
- Robin Warren Drive
- Winch Way
- Wonnul Place
- Yubarl Lane (private road)
The two conservation parks in the precinct are:
- Aileen Plant Park
- Moitch Park
