The $2.67 million pavilion is home to the Collegians and includes renovated clubrooms, bar, function area, kitchen and three changerooms with medical, coach and player facilities.

Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said he encouraged locals to take advantage of the facility for their events, functions or community group meetings.

“It truly is an investment and an asset to the City and the whole of the western suburbs,” Mr Hipkins said. “The Collegians Football Club is lucky to call this their home clubroom.

“At one stage they were known to have the worst clubrooms in the amateur football league and now they would probably have the best. I hope they feel a sense of pride when the next football season begins.”

The project was funded by the City, Department of Sport and Recreation and the Collegians Amateur Football Club and was officially completed on October 23 last year after 10 months work.

Landscaping and carpark improvements are currently underway and are due for completion before the football season starts in April.

A ceremony will be held to officially name the pavilion and recognise the City’s first permanent resident Adam Armstrong.
