Work started this month on the first stage of $6 million playing fields in Stockland�s Amberton estate.

The 8.8ha site will include two AFL-sized ovals that can be used for a range of sports including cricket, soccer and rugby and will be located on the corner of Cinnabar Drive and Aquamarine Street.

Expected to be ready for use by March 2016, the first stage includes the eastern oval, a playground, barbecue, seating facilities and parking spaces for more than 100 cars.

Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton said the fields would become a landmark in the northern growth corridor.

Mr Dutton said they expected the sports fields to be popular with residents who could walk or cycle to the ovals.

�The playing fields will be an exciting location for kids and adults alike to come together and have fun, whether it�s socialising or engaging in sporting or recreational activities,� he said.

�Stage one of the new sporting fields will provide even more opportunities for locals to get outdoors and lead an active, healthy lifestyle.�

The estate also has a social enterprise caf�, Livvi�s, which opened in February through a national partnership between Stockland and the Touched By Olivia Foundation.
