Implementation of the Ray Owen Masterplan will address current constraints of the site and make it a better place for sport and recreation activities. More members of the community will have access to the facility, and to the local clubs or activities on offer, ensuring it reaches its full potential as a regional sporting precinct.
This includes West Rise Basketball Association. West Rise Basketball is the only league for players with special needs in Western Australia. This project has made a significant impact on the lives of players, their families and carers – as well as promoting diversity in West Australian basketball, enabling acceptance and professional development of players.
