Formerly known as Butler North District Open Space, Halesworth Park is set to become a central venue for a range of local sports clubs and codes upon completion.
The City of Wanneroo has allocated nearly $11 million in its 2020/21 budget for major works at the site which will house the sports and recreation complex.
Situated on Halesworth Parade next to John Butler Primary College, the venue will include two floodlit multipurpose turf playing ovals, 16 multi-use hardcourts and adjacent amenities building, cricket nets, a sports pavilion with change rooms, a dual-use running track, picnic facilities and a children’s play area.
The City expects work to be delivered in two stages, with the southern oval scheduled for completion in December 2020, in readiness for the start of the new school year. The northern oval is slated for March 2021, to coincide with the start of term two.
The sports amenities buildings are on track for completion by July 2021, with the surrounding infrastructure to follow by September 2022.
The project has also received commitments of $5 million from the Federal Government and $2 million from the State Government’s Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, as well as $1.2 million and $980,000 from LWP Property Group and the Department of Education respectively.
