City of Gosnells residents are invited to have their say on plans to convert three of the four tennis courts into multisport courts at Mills Park in Beckenham.

The multisport courts will include markings for basketball and netball and include a general free play area with a shade shelter and seating.

The tennis court closest to the Mills Park Centre will remain, and a fence will be installed between the tennis court and multisport courts for safety. The courts will be floodlit for evening use.

City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode said the inclusion of basketball and netball courts will better represent the Gosnells sporting community.

“A recent report has found tennis court hire at Mills Park is low compared to the City’s other public tennis courts, while there has been growing demand for additional netball and basketball courts,” he said.

“The conversion of the courts, as well as a free play area for games such as three on three basketball, will accommodate a multitude of sports at Mills Park, not just tennis.

“But we want to ensure the City is delivering on what the community needs, and that’s why we are encouraging feedback from sporting clubs, residents and anyone who uses Mills Park.” 

Feedback can be submitted to the City until 5pm Wednesday 4 December.

The feedback will be assessed in early 2020, and the outcomes relayed to the community. It is anticipated the project will be complete mid-2020, pending the outcome of the community consultation period.

For more information please contact the City on 9397 3000 or email council@gosnells.wa.gov.au
