Evening testing on the eye-catching light box feature on the $6.7m Treeby Community and Sports Centre is a sign the project is progressing steadily, with completion due early-mid 2022.
While the architectural feature will look great at night, it will also serve as a practical wayfaring tool for our community.
The City worked closely with Treeby locals to develop the designs for the new centre, with feedback helping shape the concept design advertised for public comment.
The new centre will incorporate various artworks, with the theme being nature and environment.
A hanging sculpture inspired by the flight path of the Karak (Forest Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo) is just one of many artistic elements that will feature at the new centre.
The Treeby project is just one of many exciting infrastructure projects included in the City of Cockburn’s $35.89m capital works budget for 2021-2022.
