Work will soon start on the construction of a new sporting pavilion and a storage facility at Halesworth Park in Butler, after Council awarded a tender for the works at its April meeting.

Council accepted a tender from Wangara based Swan Group WA for the $9.3 million construction project, that will provide local sporting clubs with new change rooms, multi-purpose rooms, universal access toilet facilities, first aid rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, kiosks and improved storage.

Wanneroo Mayor Linda Aitken said Halesworth Park was already hugely popular with local sport and recreation groups in the City’s northern corridor.

“The state-of-the-art Halesworth Park complex is home to a wide range of sporting codes, from rugby, football and soccer to netball, baseball, cricket, athletics and lacrosse,” she said.

“The construction of the new sporting pavilion and a storage building will complement the park’s existing facilities perfectly and will surely be well used by our local sporting clubs.”

Stage one of the Halesworth Park project included the construction of the highly anticipated 11.9-hectare sporting and recreation precinct, which boasts two multi-sport ovals, 16 multi-use hardcourts, cricket nets, a dual-use path, children’s play area and picnic facilities.

“I’m so pleased we are progressing with stage two of the Halesworth Park project. I look forward to the City delivering these upgraded facilities to benefit our local northern suburbs community,” Mayor Aitken said.

"Thank you to the Federal Government, State Government, LWP Property Group and WA Department of Education for your contributions to this project."

The construction of the Halesworth Park sporting pavilion and storage building will begin this financial year, with completion scheduled for mid-2024.
