Serpentine Jarrahdale property developer Cedar Woods introduced a new pavilion at its estate The Brook at Byford with a free community event on March 18.
The pavilion located on the Grana Vista axis in Byford was officially opened at the event, which included face painting, food stalls, pony rides and live music.
The design of the pavilion was inspired by the rich heritage of Byford and the surrounding areas.
Its recycled bricks mixed with steel and timber construction, simple gable form and brick kiln chimney reference landmark structures, which have been a characteristic of the region for more than century.
Cedar Woods’ WA state manager Ben Rosser said the new public open space was unique to Byford and the region.
“Within each of our developments Cedar Woods is committed to conserving the unique beauty and history of the area,” he said.
“The aim at The Brook at Byford was to reference the significant history of industry and heritage of the region where older and younger generations can remember and connect with.
“The machinery plaques on the all have been recovered from derelict equipment found in the recently decommissioned brick kiln in Cardup and artefacts have been kindly donated by Austral Bricks.”
Mr Rosser said the pavilion has been on site for a few weeks now and the feedback had been positive.
The pavilion is the second public open space at The Brook a Byford and is strategically located between two parks creating a focal rendezvous point for the community.
