Burrendah Park Ancillary Works Landscape Master Plan
The Burrendah Park Landscape Master Plan is a four year, $4.8million transformation of the Willetton Sports Precinct in Burrendah Park.
The program of works will see the establishment of a pedestrian-friendly Community Piazza that aims to improve access and connectivity between the Sports Precinct, Southlands Boulevarde Shopping Centre and Willetton Senior High School.
The Master Plan includes:
- A new forecourt adjacent to the soon to be completed Willetton Basketball Stadium
- Integrated pedestrian hub, skate plaza and active laneway
- New fencing between Willetton Bowling Club’s club house and adjoining car park
- New accessible male and female toilets for the Willetton Netball and Willetton Tennis Clubs
- Works to re-instate the western and southern car parks.
The Burrendah Park Ancillary Works Landscape Master Plan is expected to be delivered over phases. The City plans to engage the community and get feedback on the project as it develops.
