A NEW soccer stadium valued at $700,000 will be part of the Hartfield Park redevelopment in Forrestfield.
The 400-seat stadium will be managed by the Shire of Kalamunda and funded by the State Government.
Shire President Andrew Waddell said the redevelopment was an exciting project.
“The Shire is pleased to see the development coming to fruition, with several upgrades already complete, including the expansion of Morrison Oval,” he said.
Forrestfield MLA Nathan Morton 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.”
Sporting clubs based at Hartfield Park have seen a lot of growth over the past five years which is expected to continue into the future.
Forrestfield United now has about 700 members, making it one of the largest sporting groups in the Shire.
Hartfield Park Reserve is the largest sporting and recreation reserve in the Shire of Kalamunda, containing a wide range of regional community sport and recreation infrastructure that services an extensive area.
The $6 million Hartfield Park redevelopment project is set to be completed by December next year.
Other parts of the redevelopment include field lighting, upgrading of equipment, car park improvements and an Aquifer recharge project.
