Construction has begun on an $8 million playing field and pavilion in Piara Waters.

The facility at Piara Waters South Playing Field and Pavilion in Tuberose Road will be a state-of-the-art shared-use community area which will include change rooms, a playground and car parking.

The pavilion will feature multi-purpose function rooms, a clubroom, kiosk, alfresco and step seating for spectators.

Funding for the facility included $6.9 million from the City of Armadale and a $500,000 grant from the Department of Sport and Recreation.

The Department of Education also contributed to the playing field because of its close proximity to Forrestdale South West Primary School.

Construction was expected to take up to 10 months and City of Armadale mayor Henry Zelones said it was an exciting development for the community.

“The new pavilion will ease the pressure on local sports field and facilities in a growing community by providing spaces for sporting groups, community groups and private functions,” he said.
