Planned to be a great town
When sales first began way back in 1994, a community plan was already in place at Ellenbrook. One of the first things to be implemented was a Community Development Officer, co funded with the City of Swan, who facilitated new groups, holiday programmes and much more.
Today, Ellenbrook is a modern town that 30,000+ residents call home. The original plan helped to ensure that Ellenbrook is a happy, healthy, vibrant and inclusive community.
It has garnered over 30 international, national and state awards, both for its urban and for community planning, as a self sustaining, environmentally friendly place to live.
Events, green space and groups
Ellenbrook has a great sense of vitality and fun. A wide range of activities and events are catered for by the Place team from City of Swan and numerous local groups and associations.
The arts are well catered for in Ellenbrook, with Library, Gallery and Theatre all in the town centre. Additionally, spaces in the villages have been designed into the public open spaces (think, Ampitheatre in Woodlake, The Grapevine community artspace in Charlotte's Vineyard).
Additionally, Ellenbrook is renowned for its public art and sculptures throughout the town. Take a walk through Ellen Stirling gardens at the top of town.
Get fit, have fun or a simple stroll
Walking and cycling is made easy by the village scale and extensive network of uninterrupted pathways and cycleways that link the villages and town centre. Beautiful streets with shady trees create environments that are safe, comfortable and enjoyable for walking.
Ellenbrook has extensive public open space, from reflective parks to active spaces including a District Sports facility, State Swim, Waterplay park and so much more. There's a wide range of playgrounds throughout the villages too.
Ellenbrook, the new town of the Swan Valley
Ellenbrook is located very close to the Swan Valley, with a huge range of pubs, restaurants and wineries to visit.
Other specialties include cheese, chocolate, more chocolate (you can never have too much!), nougat and nuts, and some lovely cafes that do great breakfasts.
Mini Golf is available in the Valley, and also at The Vine Resort.
Lots to explore!
