On a loop of the Swan River was a swampy, often inundated farm known as Burswood Island.
Over the years the farm failed and the “island” became the City dump.
Then, in the 1970’s it was decided that this eyesore, which happened to be beside the road from the Perth Airport to the City, needed to be beautified.
And so the Burswood Casino development began.
While other problems were created, there have been some marvellous parklands and sculpture to enrich the people of Perth.
