Healing Hearts Foundation/Rotary Club of Heirisson played a key role in the $1+ million project that created PoR. (Phase 1)


The Phase 1 consultancy contract was awarded to Walker Shanley & Associates and was managed by the PoR Consortium. The Consortium’s relationship dates back to 2005 when the initial feasibility study for PoR was carried out and continued through the $1m+ project to build and launch PoR.


The Consortium met monthly with Walker Shanley who provided a range of professional expertise. (Walker Shanley were also involved in assisting PoR Phase 2)


Gary Redmond and later Liz Pattison project managed the Consortium. In 2014 the PoR won the prestigious WA Landscape Architects Award for public landscaping.
