Residents of the City of Gosnells can have their say on the future of Sutherlands Park, by providing feedback on the Sutherlands Park Master Plan and contributing ideas for a new youth space proposed at the park.
Sutherlands Park in Huntingdale is a 30-hectare site which features seven sports reserves, three pavilions, a community centre, two playgrounds, a synthetic hockey ground, indoor cricket training facility, and a Bush Forever environmental site.
Included in the proposed Master Plan is the provision to build the new Sutherlands Park Leisure, Aquatic and Sports Hub (SPLASH). To develop the plan, the City has consulted with key sports clubs that use the park.
Mayor Terresa Lynes encouraged the community to review and comment on the Master Plan, which will represent the City’s single largest investment in sport and recreation.
“This is a significant project for the community, and the City is keen to share its plans and gather feedback from those residents who will benefit from the facilities at Sutherlands Park,” she said.
“Sutherlands Park is located in a major growth corridor, with the population of the area expected to increase significantly in the coming years.
“The City’s aim is to ensure that Sutherlands Park can become a one-stop sporting hub for the whole community.” Community members can also contribute their ideas to a new youth space for Sutherlands Park. Survey respondents will receive a chance to win one of three $25 gift cards.
The Master Plan and youth space consultation will be available on yoursay.gosnells.wa.gov.au until Sunday 25 November, after which the City will review all feedback.
