Forrest Place

Forrest Place was redeveloped in 2014, cementing its position as the number one public square in Perth.

Purpose built lounges and al fresco public spaces provide an area in which to sit and relax creating a destination for city workers and visitors alike.  There is a large event program in the space including Christmas festivities, school holiday programs, Twilight Hawkers Market and a number of external events, all of which draw thousands of people to the CBD.

Forrest Place is home to several permanent installations including Grow Your Own (2011) by James Angus and Water Labyrinth (2012), the first permanent water sculpture by international artist Jeppe Hein.
