City of Swan chief executive Mike Foley said the turf at the Ellenbrook District Open Space Southern Playing Fields was scheduled to be laid in April.

The project is expected to be finished by July and groups should be able to use the facility soon after.

At 32,000sq m, the four full-size FIFA 1 Star-rated fields will become the biggest synthetic playing facility in the state.

The sports pavilion – which will house eight change rooms, a function space and meeting space – is expected to open in August.
