No doubt, you would've seen the large 8 metre high monument as you've driven by, but have you stopped to take a look? Erected by the Abruzzese Emigrant Association of Australia in 2008, the monument symbolises the contribution of migrants and to 'remember and honour all migrants who have come to Australia.' Supported either side by the Australian and the Italian flags, it certainly makes for an interesting entrance to our CBD.
Lake Vasto is the expansive lake that runs through the park. Fostering the sister city relationship between Perth and Vasto in Italy, it was named in 2004 by the Lord Mayor of Perth and the Mayor of Vasto. The lake supports a variety of birdlife and brings the gentle and relaxing sounds of birds into the city.
We dont seem get the time to walk around our city enough - it currently give the impression it all about the hustle and bustle of the work life and will be more so when they close the Causeway,sadly I have walked on parts of the area shown but I ve not seen this statue, will have to look harder when I get the chance!
