The reserve will service residents from Huntingdale, Canning Vale, Southern River and Gosnells. As a regional open space the reserve will also attract users from a wide catchment area, particularly residents of suburbs in the northern part of Armadale such as Harrisdale and Piara Waters.
Seventeen clubs currently use the dated facilities and reserves with activities including AFL, soccer, hockey, cricket, softball and archery. The current facility has no spare capacity for the schools which are planned or being built within the surrounding suburbs.
Currently, the City of Gosnells has the third lowest availability of public swimming pool lanes in the Perth metropolitan area, and a new aquatic centre would deliver much need facilities for the local community.
How many estimated jobs will the project create?
- Construction phase: over 3,000
- Ongoing: over 100
