A NEW sporting history and cultural space at Subiaco Oval is being championed by the City of Subiaco.

The City wants the State Government to include an innovative cultural space for locals and visitors, part of the Subi East redevelopment.

The proposed space would be easily accessible by foot, with connectivity to nearby train stations.

Multi-functional spaces would make way for exhibitions, artist studios and public programs and events.

Subiaco Mayor Penny Taylor said Subiaco Oval was at the centre of a major urban redevelopment and decisions needed to be made on how best to respect and celebrate the history, heritage and culture of the space.

“Subiaco Oval is a sporting icon – it is hallowed turf and an iconic part of Perth’s culture that has been a place of great memories for so many people for more than 100 years,” she said.

“Rather than losing or compromising all that Subiaco Oval means, we have an opportunity to celebrate it.

“I want to be sure that the State’s plans for Subi East allow Subiaco to continue as a premier visitor destination where you’re guaranteed to have a great experience.”
