Rosalie Park Parking Management Plan

Parked cars

Finding a balance of parking options for users at Rosalie Park

The city's Rosalie Park Parking Management Plan was developed in consultation with community stakeholders and endorsed by Council in February 2017. The plan contains actions which aim to provide a balance of parking options in the area for both residents and visitors to local facilities such as the school and sporting fields.

This page will be used for any future Rosalie Park parking consultation opportunities. Updates about the implementation of the plan will be published on the city's website.

Upcoming changes

  • Paid parking in Derby Road car station 18 and Onslow Road car station 17 on Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 4pm, as of Monday 10 April. The first three (3) hours free then capped at $5 to $8 thereafter.
  • A parking ticket will need to be displayed at all times between 9am and 4pm Monday to Sunday. Alternatively, you can use the EasyPark app to initiate a valid EasyPark session.
  • Creation of two (2) parking bays for people with disabilities in Onslow Road car station 17.
  • The city will investigate improved kiss-and-drive facilities for set down and collection of children from Rosalie Primary School.
  • The city will explore the opportunity for reciprocal parking opportunities within the QEII complex to increase parking supply on weekends.
  • Further consultation with residents in relation to changes to parking within their streets.

    Rosalie Park generates significant parking demand among a variety of users accessing this space and we recognise that there are some flaws in the current management of parking in this location.

    Current parking areas are reported to be at capacity Monday to Friday from early morning through to approximately 3:30 pm with the vast majority of users considered all-day parkers working in the neighbouring area. Parking is also reported at capacity on weekends, especially on Sundays during the winter sports season, from 8:00 am through to early afternoon. This results in users parking a considerable distances from the facility which negatively impacts residents in neighbouring areas with increased street traffic and parking demand on local parking spaces in residential areas.

    There are many parking-related issues in this location which include:

    • high demand for limited bays in the evenings and on weekends
    • seasonal parking shortfalls, especially in the winter months
    • absence of parking options to evenly distribute parking demand
    • safety concerns during school access times with a need for safe and effective access options for pick-up and drop off
    • no disabled parking or bicycle parking
    • compliance is not effective due to limited enforcement resources, especially on weekends
    • current operating hours of parking restrictions, Monday to Friday 8 am to 4 pm, do not cover the periods of peak demand
    • modest weekday parking fees, compared to proximity parking
    • narrow access to angle parking bays, leading to the pavilion, becoming very congested during peak use frequently resulting in blocked emergency access

    Rosalie Park is used by 6 sporting codes, as listed below, with the number of attendants in brackets.

    • Onslow Park Tennis Club (135 Seniors, 101 Juniors)
    • Rosalie Touch Association (520 summer seniors, 320 winter seniors, 60 Summer Juniors)
    • Subiaco Football AFC (200 Seniors, 50 Veterans) and AFL (135 Juniors, 142 Sub Juniors)
    • Subiaco city Junior Soccer Club (SCJSC) (300 Juniors, 360 sub juniors)
    • Subiaco Lacrosse Club (85 Seniors, 60 Juniors, 10 Sub Juniors)
    • Western Suburbs Cricket Club (180 Seniors, 20 Juniors)
    In addition to the sporting codes and their spectators, Rosalie Park currently provides parking for residents and their visitors, recreational users, QEII hospital staff, visitors and contractors, primary school and kindy drop-off and pick up, church patrons, commercial visitors and council vehicles.
