Moyle Pavilion and Hamer Park Clubrooms officially opened
The City of Stirling has celebrated the official opening of the Moyle Pavilion and Hamer Park Clubrooms after over $6 million was invested into community sport through the construction of new facilities.
The new construction of Moyle Pavilion at Inglewood Oval and of Hamer Park Clubrooms, including provision of new sports floodlighting, has been a significant project for the City.
Mayor Mark Irwin said the project would provide positive and widespread impacts for the community across several clubs and sports.
“Moyle Pavilion and Hamer Park Clubrooms are home to Mount Lawley Inglewood Junior Football Club, the Mount Lawley Inglewood Cricket Club, the Mount Lawley Amateur Football Club and the Perth Baseball Club,” he said.
“This is therefore a significant investment in the local sporting community across a number of sports and has been a strategic priority for the local sporting community for many years given the age of the existing facilities.
“Consultation on the various options for refurbishment and redevelopment have been progressing since as early as 2014, with the new facilities having been selected in February 2020. I thank Ward Councillors Joe Ferrante and Suzanne Migdale for their efforts during this period to find the best outcome for the community.
“And in completing this project, I wish to acknowledge on behalf of the City of Stirling the contribution of the State Government, with a significant $1.3 million enabling the aspirations of the local community to be realised.”
Member for Mount Lawley, Simon Millman MLA, said that the State Government provided $1.3 million towards the project through a McGowan Government election commitment.
“The State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is a major supporter of community sport and recreation facilities in WA,” Mr Millman said.
“These facilities play an important role in helping people stay active, healthy, and connected – which is why I am excited our local sports clubs at Inglewood Oval and Hamer Park now have access to these impressive new buildings.
“I thank the Mayor Mark Irwin and the City of Stirling for their work in securing this excellent result with the community.”
The size and types of internal spaces for the clubrooms were determined through review of industry best practice, State Sporting Association guidelines and other City facility provisions to ensure they met the clubs’ needs and provided a longer term and sustainable approach to supporting participation in community sport.
The Hamer Park Clubrooms and Moyle Pavilion now provide new and redeveloped facilities that include:
- new clubroom area – to support the cultural and social connection of clubs’ members and enhance spectator viewing
- kitchen and kiosk with outwards facing servery, so volunteers can view the sporting field
- storage with external access provided for each club to allow for storage of items during the off-season
- changerooms provided as gender neutral with shower cubicles, separate wet areas for each changeroom, provision of two home team and two visitor changerooms
- an office to assist with management of sporting club and growing needs for privacy and security of information
- umpire changerooms, as a dedicated space for umpires and can accommodate growth in female umpires
- internal toilets to service the clubroom and spectators
- veranda and spectator area, with size and space dependent on location
- An internal servery for food and drink service.
Extensive consultation with the community revealed the need to retain the leafy green natural environment of the parkland setting, preserve and improve the sporting and recreational amenity, deliver contemporary and functional facilities, whilst at the same time ensuring continued community access to the park by non-sporting users.
Public art as part of the project is in development and will include two pieces of artwork in the passive green spaces surrounding the ovals. These artworks, set to be installed later in 2022, will be completed by WA artist Addam.
