Tucked away in a corner of West Perth is a tiny remnant of one of Western Australia’s most historic parks.

Hamilton Park sprung from the 1914-1937 City Beautiful movement. It was officially opened for public use in 1917. Today there still remains some of the first existing trees. The Pickle District team is restoring what remains of Hamilton Park and connecting it to our thriving arts community.

Recognising and revitalising our social history

This forgotten strip of land lies within our burgeoning arts hub. We will build upon the existing sculpture trail, establish an area for events and create a space for people in the area to sit, relax and enjoy.


With the help of local arts business VOXLAB, we have begun to infill the area with sculptures FROM local artists.

Our first additions from the ‘Sculpture by the Freeway’ project in 2020 were followed by the HMAS Endeavour entry statement + signage. Recently the addition of ‘The Prickle’ from Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe (which won the Andrea Stretton Memorial Invitation to exhibit in Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2023).

The Pickle District acknowledges the Yabbaru Bibbulman as the traditional owners of the area.

We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, and pay respect to elders past, present and emerging. We recognise the unique and incomparable contribution the Yabbaru Bibbulman people have made and continue to make to our culture and in our community. We will continue to seek the input of the Traditional Owners.

The land on which we live, meet and thrive as a community always was and always will be Noongar land.
