City Beach

City Beach is a beachside suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the Town of Cambridge. Its postcode is 6015. The term "City Beach" is also a specific beach located within the suburb of the same name. All of the homes located in City Beach are expensive, modern, and contemporary. Sale price for homes are generally over 1,000,000 dollars, with the majority being between 1,500,000 and 3,000,000 dollars.City Beach consists of three sections: a northern section (bordering Scarborough), a central section (bordering Wembley Downs and Floreat) and a southern section (bordering Bold Park). The northern part was built immediately prior to the 1962 Commonwealth Games (then called the Empire Games) as an athletes' village due to its proximity to Perry Lakes Stadium in neighbouring Floreat.HistoryIn 1917, the Perth City Council purchased the Lime Kilns Estate of 1290acre, situated between the Endowment Lands and the City, thus linking the City with the ocean beach. The Council proposed to lay out an up-to-date seaside town near the ocean beach on garden city lines, embodying approved Town Planning principles, and making ample provision for recreation purposes. By 1928, the Council had allocated finance to commence work, and also referred to the beach as "City Beach". It appears this name developed because it was an area developed by the City Council and much more acceptable than "Ocean Beach" which was even more descriptive than City Beach.On 9 December 2005, City Beach Senior High School was officially closed by the Department of Education and Training due to a lack of new student enrollments and the opening of Shenton College 5 kilometres away in 2000.
