Keirnan Park Recreation Precinct

Project Justification

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale encompasses a current population of 27,654 people across an expansive area of 905km2. The Shire is set to experience further hyper-growth, with over 100,000 new people in the next 30 years. It is imperative that the Shire effectively plan for and enable the timely delivery of sport and recreational facilities to meet the needs of our changing community.

The Shire’s 'Health and Wellbeing Strategy' identifies that 70 per cent of the community members are overweight or obese, highlighting the importance of active lifestyles for both physical and mental wellbeing.

Current facilities are already at capacity or constrained, not meeting existing needs of the sporting clubs, and not being able to facilitate further membership. There is a need for a centralised community hub focused on the sports and recreation to address the current and future community’s needs and wellbeing.
