UPGRADES to the facilities at Atwell Reserve have been finished.
The works cost $1 million and included an extension of the existing kitchen, a larger function room, new ramp access to the car park, additional storerooms, new toilet facilities, an umpire’s change room and the relocation of two cricket practice nets.
The sporting facility on Brenchley Drive is home to two football clubs and two cricket clubs with more than 1200 members combined.
Built in 1998, the facility had received only minor changes prior to this point.
Mayor Logan Howlett said there was a need to increase the capacity to meet the needs of the clubs and the community.
“This building project is one of many recently completed facilities to meet the needs of our growing Cockburn community,” he said.
“Other projects nearing completion or commencing soon include Cockburn ARC at Cockburn Central West and the new Cockburn Bowling and Recreation Club to be located at Visko Park in Yangebup.”
