Community members are invited to provide feedback on the draft Gosnells Oval Master Plan, with two information sessions planned this month.
Plans for the oval include a new nature play all abilities playground with a splash pad for water play, along with a new sports pavilion, improvements to the grandstand and upgrades to landscaping, the oval’s playing surface and car park.
City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode said the project, estimated to cost over $6 million, was likely to be constructed in stages over a five-year period to help minimise the impact of construction for groups using the oval, visitors and residents.
“Gosnells Oval deserves to be revitalised to meet our community’s changing needs,” he said.
“Currently, community access to the oval is limited, the Percy Garrett Pavilion is dated and lacks amenities for women; drainage and irrigation needs to be improved; and the heritage-listed RS Sampson Grandstand requires work to keep it structurally sound.
“Gosnells Oval is in a key location, and as more high-density housing is built near the train line, the importance and use of this space for community recreation will only increase.”
Two community information sessions will be held at Gosnells Oval for residents to view plans and make comments, on Tuesday 8 June and Wednesday 9 June.
Community members can also view details and make comments online at yoursay.gosnells.wa.gov.au until Friday 18 June.
