Community Calendar 2016 - Coming Soon!



Have Your Say About Mosman Park's Future

The Town of Mosman Park has embarked on a review of our Strategic Community Plan.

This important document was originally drafted in 2013, laying out the Town’s priorities for the next ten years and the key strategic objectives in place to assist us in delivering on those priorities.

We are now updating the plan and in order to ensure that our current priorities reflect those of you, our community, will be conducting community consultation over the coming weeks and months. This review will be completed by early 2016.

Community Unites to Celebrate Seniors


The Seniors Week Festival is a special time of celebration for Western Australian seniors. From 8 to 15 November 2015, events and activities where held right across Western Australia to acknowledge seniors’ contribution to society and promote intergenerational activities during the festival period.

On Thursday 12 November the Town of Mosman Park in collaboration with the Shire of Peppermint Grove and Town of Cottesloe provided a thank you morning tea for local seniors hosted by the Mosman Park Bowling Club.

The morning tea, attended by approximately 120 residents, created an opportunity for neighbours to mingle as well as enjoying a musical melody performed by students from the Beehive Montessori School and hits of yesteryear performed by professional musician Ben O’Brien.

The morning tea was also a good opportunity for guests to learn about the Community History services provided at the Grove Library. Attendees were encouraged to make an appointment with Sindy Dowden at the Library to record their oral histories.

Door prizes were kindly donated by Bunnings Cottesloe, Arts Cafe at Camelot and Cimbalino Espresso in Cottesloe.

This event was provided thanks to funding from Council on the Ageing, Lotterywest and the Department of Local Government and Communities and helps achieve outcomes in the Western Suburbs’ Age Friendly Community Plan.


Lone Pine Links Mosman Park With Gallipoli on Remembrance Day

A collaborative project between the Town of Mosman Park and the local sub-branch of the RSL brought a special significance to Remembrance Day 2015.

Planted in the grounds at Memorial Park, the site that is home to the offices of the Town of Mosman Park as well as several memorials to Australian war service, is a pine tree propagated from the ‘Lone Pine’ after which one of the most famous/infamous battles of the Gallipoli campaign in August 2015 was named.

The story of how the tree came to be planted here at Mosman Park is a tale that pays tribute to two Diggers, the love of their Mother and her dedication to remember her fallen son; and the help of Australian officials and school children, all of whom worked together to ensure that the tree survived.

Lance Corporal Benjamin Smith visited the site shortly after the battle where his brother, Private Mark Smith had been killed, and retrieved a pine cone from one of the branches that were used as overhead cover by the soldiers in the battle of Lone Pine.

Upon his return to Australia, he gave the cone to his mother, Mrs G.T. McMullen who later propagated seeds from it and donated a sapling to the Australian War Memorial.  Seeds from this tree were then used to propagate another which was cared for by students from Rockingham Senior High School and presented to then RSL of the Mosman Park RSL, Ken Walker in 2006.

The tree was then planted at Memorial Park, and joins other trees planted on the site in memory of many local lads who travelled far away and gave the ultimate sacrifice for king and country.

Town of Mosman Park Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Poynton, who is also now President of the Mosman Park Sub Branch of the RSL, said that the tree is now thriving in its new location, with a wonderful view out over the Swan River, and next to it has been installed an interpretive sign that tells the long and fascinating story of how it came to be there.

He said the tree is enduring symbol of courage and sacrifice, and he encouraged local residents to visit the tree to embark on their own personal reflections about the meaning and significance of Gallipoli and Australia’s war service over the years; especially on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. 

The tree was a focal point in Remembrance Day celebrations at the Town, which are held each year when staff and residents pause in quiet reflection at on the 11th hour of the 11th day each year to remember them, lest we forget.
