A major redevelopment of the Gosnells city centre took place from 1999 to 2005, and part of that redevelopment involved upgrading Centennial Pioneer Park and constructing a Treetop Walk and Riverside Boardwalk, as well as a Wetland Boardwalk which meanders past a natural spring and through a natural wetland beside the Canning River.
At the same time the existing Town Hall and Public Library were demolished and replaced by the Five Star Green Rated The Agonis @ Gosnells Civic Centre, which includes a state-of-the-art Knowledge Centre.
In March 2009 I used boardwalk signage and seating as waypoints for my multi-cache GC1PBXH WanAus 70 - Canning River Walk. The final location of the geocache is under the Wetland Boardwalk.
Centennial Pioneer Park is located beside the Canning River near the cultural and commercial centre of Gosnells. Entry to the Wetland Boardwalk and the park can be made via the Treetop Walk and Riverside Boardwalk, or from about six other entries.
There are free barbecues, picnic tables, an excellent Adventure Playground, and an outdoor stage overlooked by a tiered Amphitheatre which is used for various cmmunity events including monthly Music in the Park during the warmer months and an annual Australia Day Celebration.
