Timeline

Start: Mid 2020 Finish: Late 2023

Budget

$9.15m

Beale Park is located at 9 Kent in Spearwood and is the home of the Cockburn City Soccer Club. It is an active sporting reserve that plays an important role in attracting and growing community sport. It also provides open space for locals to enjoy.

What upgrades are proposed?

The proposed park upgrades will support the needs of sporting users and the wider community, and will include:
  • Multi-purpose sporting and community facility
  • Increased car parking and improved access
  • More space for sport via the re-orientation of buildings, parking and fields
  • New playground
  • New floodlighting.
Following the development of a high level master plan as part of the Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct Study in 2018, the City undertook further consultation in late 2020 to understand community priorities for a new playground, public artwork, and ancillary infrastructure at Beale Park.

What will happen next?

The City has worked with external consultants and has revised the master plan and prepared a new concept design that considers (but is not limited to):   
  • Site layout (to meet sporting and community recreation needs)
  • Building layout (to meet user needs)
  • Parking and traffic movements
  • Sports lighting
  • Environmental assessments such as Carnaby’s Cockatoo roosting sites
  • Other technical elements such as drainage, irrigation, civil works etc.
The City's external environmental consultants are in the process of preparing a subsequent Black Cockatoo Significance Assessment based on the revised site plan which will help to determine further steps/actions and the need to refer our proposal to the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (ADAWE) under the EPBC Act for feedback.

The City invited community feedback on the updated draft design in December 2021. Community feedback is being considered, alongside recommendations from our environmental consultants and ADAWE, project commitments and constraints, to inform the final design outcomes.

The estimated project cost is $9.15m, with $500,000 allocated to undertake the project development process.
