Citizen of the Year LakePrint Page Print this page

The lake which is the centrepiece of the Park is named in recognition for Western Australia`s prestigious Citizen of the Year awards, with names of awardees displayed on plaques fixed to the cobbled limestone edge of the adjoining dais.

The Swan fountain sculpture which was commissioned on the 8th September 1988, depicts 5 bronze black swans majestically rising from their nest in the centre of the lake. The 5 swans each represent one of the original award categories.
