LOCAL sporting clubs and residents celebrated the official opening of the Bramston Park Community Sporting Facility in Burns Beach on Saturday.
Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard joined Environment and Heritage Minister Albert Jacob, who was representing Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies, in unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark the occasion.
Representatives from the Westside Football Club, Joondalup-Kinross Cricket Club, Burns Beach Residents Association, Iluka Homeowners Association, Indian Blue Chorus, Joondalup Adventure Guides and Joondalup Guides also attended.
The $2.9 million facility includes floodlighting, a synthetic cricket pitch, new changerooms and toilets, storage areas, a kitchen and kiosk, meeting area and playground, barbecue, and picnic shelter.
Mr Pickard said the facility would help alleviate a shortage of usable active public open space for organised sporting activities in the City’s north.
