Project Status


Project Type

Parks & Playgrounds


Start: Mid 2024 Finish: Late 2024



The City is upgrading Santich Park in Lake Coogee to meet the growing needs of the local sporting clubs, including the South Coogee Junior Football Club and Cockburn Little Athletics Club, along with the broader community. 
The upgrades will occur in two stages, with the first concentrating on the improvement of the sporting ground, followed by the second stage focusing on upgrading the buildings. Stage one is scheduled to start in mid-2024 and finish by the end of the same year. The timing of stage two is yet to be determined.
Stage 1 upgrades will include:
  • Further sports lighting
    • Australian Standard lighting will be installed around the southern oval of the ground, extending playing hours and enhancing safety. 
  • Safer parking
    • The perimeter railing will be realigned to prevent parked cars from overhanging onto the road, improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety. 
  • Optimised layout
    • The discus throw circles will be relocated for a more efficient use of space and enhanced functionality. 
  • Increased parking capacity
    • A new 45-bay carpark will be constructed in the ground's north-eastern area (near Shelley Way), helping to ease parking congestion and improving accessibility. 
The total cost of Stage 1 of the project is $1.76m, with $1.66m from the City of Cockburn, and $99,790 from the State Government’s Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF).  
The City prepared a draft design for stage one and sought feedback from the community in 2018 and 2021.
The State Government, through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, is a major supporter of community sport and recreation facilities in Western Australia. Sport and recreation builds stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities. When we play sport our whole community wins.
