$1.45 million boost for sport and recreation in City of Stirling

The $1.45 million refurbishment of change rooms at Des Penman Memorial Reserve in Nollamara has been officially opened.

The reserve, located on Lemana Road, is home to the Nollamara Cricket Club and the Nollamara Football Club.

The project included the provision of four unisex change rooms which will improve capacity for men’s and women’s teams to use the facility at the same time.

The upgraded facilities will also accommodate the growing use of the facility by club members, and foster participation in football and cricket by girls and women who did not have access to adequate change room facilities prior to these upgrades.

The State Government contributed $400,000 to the upgrade through its Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund administered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Other sources of funding for the project included:

  • $550,000 from the City of Stirling; and
  • $500,000 from the Federal Government.
