FORRESTFIELD will be home to a brand new 400-seat soccer stadium valued at nearly $700,000 as a part of the Hartfield Park Redevelopment.
Shire of Kalamunda President Andrew Waddell said the redevelopment was an exciting project, managed by the Shire and funded by the WA State Government.
“The Shire is pleased to see the development coming to fruition, with several upgrades already complete, including the expansion of Morrison Oval,” he said.
“The soccer stadium will be the next exciting project to start.” Member for Forrestfield Nathan Morton said the community had been calling for the development for some time.
“I’ve heard it first-hand when door-knocking local residents,” he said.
“This development for the Forrestfield United Soccer Club as well as the broader Hartfield Park redevelopment is a great example of investing in the future of our community and creating local jobs.
“The upgrade to Hartfield Park will be enjoyed and used by the people of the Forrestfield and Kalamunda areas for years to come.”
Mr Morton said sporting clubs based at Hartfield Park had experienced a surge in demand over the past five years which was expected to continue.
Forrestfield United now has close to 700 members making it one of the largest sporting groups in the Shire.
The $6 million Hartfield Park Redevelopment Project is set to be completed by December 2017.
