Citizen of The Year Swan Fountain

Artists Concept

Burswood Park boasts the presence of the Citizen of the Year Lake and the Swan Fountain. Crafted in September 1988, the striking sculpture features five black swans native to Western Australia.


It was specifically commissioned to embody the diverse categories of the Citizen of the Year awards, encompassing arts, culture, and entertainment, as well as industry and commerce, community services, the professions, and sport. In 2002, a young cygnet was introduced to the sculpture in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the awards, symbolizing the Youth Citizenship award.


The legacy of award recipients, spanning back to 1972, is commemorated on bronze plaques lining the lake's periphery.
