These trees and accompanying plaque completes the 2018 Purple Bench concept by SI Albany and the City of Albany to honour and commemorate victims of domestic homicide in WA.
Planting trees and installing a plaque and providing extra shade in the vicinity of the bench will encourage local residents to use the space for connecting to available resources on domestic violence issues (by using the telephone contact numbers provided).
The area selected for the bench not only encourages reflection in a beautiful setting but also, the planting of these trees will assist with the City of Albany program of increasing the tree canopy across the park. This will provide a safer trail for possums traversing the Park from Mount Clarence to Lake Seppings.
Soroptimist International acknowledges the support of the City of Albany and Rio Tinto through Neighbourhood Grants 2020, and the Parks and Reserves Team of the City of Albany.
