The Morrison Government has delivered $300,000 for the construction of floodlights at the Lakelands District Open Space, to help increase sporting participation and get the Mandurah community more active, more often.
The Lakelands District Open Space is a $7.9 million project under construction by the City of Mandurah on a 10 hectare site in Lakelands on the corner of Mandurah Rd and Banksiadale Gate. Due for completion in 2020, it will include 3 reserves for shared use between the local community and Coastal Lakes High School.
“It’s so important for our community to have access to enough space for sport and recreation. An active lifestyle is important for mental, social and physical wellbeing,” Member for Canning Andrew Hastie said.
“Working as a team, the spirit of competition and learning how to win and lose well are all important to a young person’s education.”
“This lighting will ensure the Lakelands District Open Space is a versatile community facility for everyone in Lakeland and north Mandurah to enjoy.”
The investment is part of the Community Sport Infrastructure Grant program that is upgrading local facilities across Australia that will help drive increased participation in sports and physical activity.
“The Morrison Government is only able to invest in local community infrastructure because of its careful economic management. That success with the budget means we can ensure investment for infrastructure and essential services in local projects like this,” Mr Hastie said.
