Maida Vale Reserve Upgrades hit major milestone

07 July 2022 2:45 PM

The City of Kalamunda has recently completed three upgrade projects at Maida Vale Reserve relating to new sports lighting, resurfacing of the entrance road from Ridgehill Road and installation of a new retaining wall, footpath and fencing along the eastern oval.

The works are part of the staged implementation of the Maida Vale Reserve Master Plan, that was adopted by Council December 2018.

The upgrades include $445,000 worth of new sporting lighting on the eastern playing fields at Maida Vale Reserve. This is part of a staged upgrade of sports lighting across the Reserve.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said “the project was a win for the local clubs that use the Reserve.”

“The City is committed to providing safe and healthy environments for the community to enjoy, and the Maida Vale Reserve Master Plan is a great example of this.”, she said.

“The new LED lighting will provide improved and safer lighting for the Kalamunda United Football Club and Kalamunda Rangers to conduct training, as well as allow Kalamunda United to host occasional night matches.”, she said

“The replacement retaining wall along the eastern ovals now allows for multiple safe entrances to the reserve, a new accessible footpath along the road, and new fencing.”

“Overall the upgrades provide modern quality facilities in a safer environment for our sporting participants and the local community.”

The upgrades have been made possible through a $148,333 grant secured through the State Governments Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) and a $50,000 contribution from the Kalamunda United Football Club.

The City is also excited to advise that it has appointed architects to commence design of the upgrades to the Norm Sadler Pavilion over the coming year with a view to commence construction in the next year after receiving a $2.4m grant from the State Government for this project
