Proposed Park Name Pigeon Park (White Gum Valley)

We’re seeking comments on the proposed name ‘Pigeon Park’ for Reserve no. 52419 at 2-4 Nannine Avenue White Gum Valley.


The new public open space (Reserve No. 52419) was created from the subdivision of the former Kim Beazley Special School and incorporates the new park to the north of Sullivan Hall and the site of the former Men’s Shed, as shown in the map below.

Naming of a local park or recreational reserve is assessed by the Landgate Geographic Names Committee (GNC) in accordance with the Policies and Standards for Geographical Naming in WA and final approval is required from the Minister for Lands. As a general guide, it is expected parks are named after an adjoining road name, other names can be considered if they meet criteria set out in the standards. Several names were investigated in consultation with the GNC, see the FAQ for more information.

Further information on the name 'Pigeon Park'

One of the buildings formerly on this site (more recently referred to as the former men's shed site) was used as a Pigeon Racing Hall. While it is not on a heritage list, the site has cultural and social significance.

A description of the site including background information can be found on the inherit website under:

  • Sullivan Halls (Place 22583).
  • Former Kim Beazley School (Place 22609), with a reference to the Pigeon Racing Hall which housed the Pigeon Racing Club.

The name Pigeon Park references the history of the site and was given conditional approval by the Geographical Naming Committee.

At their Ordinary Meeting on 20 March 2019 Council supported the proposed name of ‘Pigeon Park’ for Reserve No. 52419 (2-4 Nannine Avenue, White Gum Valley), subject to public advertising and submissions. All submissions will be compiled and presented to Council to assist their decision-making.
