Stage two of the Ocean Road Sports Facility formally kicked off with the Breaking of Ground ceremony held this morning.

The Ocean Road Sports Facility in Dawesville provides a shared-use, multi-purpose active sports reserve for students and residents in Dawesville and southern districts. Stage one of the project (the active reserve) was completed in late 2015.

Stage two of the project is now kicking off, which includes the development of community sporting facilities and sports flood lighting at the reserve, including:

  • Two changerooms
  • Umpire’s changeroom
  • Two universal public toilets
  • Two storage rooms
  • Small kiosk
  • First Aid room
  • Sports floodlighting
  • Meeting and social space

The Ocean Road Sports Facility is a $1.49m City of Mandurah project, with a $200,000 grant contribution from the National Rugby League Footy Facilities Fund.

The new sporting facilities will be home to the Mandurah Storm Rugby League Club during the winter season (April to September).

The National Footy Facilities Fund is an initiative of the National Rugby League (NRL) which assists existing and new clubs to improve the quality, availability and standard of their facilities.

Local supplier, Moore Constructions (WA) Pty Ltd Mandurah, was awarded the tender recently to undertake the works.

These new facilities are a much-needed addition to the community in Mandurah’s southern suburbs. The addition of meeting and social space in the Dawesville area will not only provide a long-term base for sports clubs to become established and grow, but will also deliver a central and flexible meeting space for community groups to operate.
