Intro

  • Sport and recreation infrastructure projects prioritising facilities for women
  • Projects were fast tracked to support WA's COVID recovery 
Among the projects funded by the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund's (CSRFF) Annual and Forward Planning grants are upgrades of the change rooms at the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley's Clarrie Cassidy Oval in Wyndham and the City of Cockburn's Goodchild Park pavilion. 

Other projects are: 
  • $400,000 to the Shire of Murray for the construction of a sports pavilion at South Yunderup Oval; 
  • $300,000 to the Shire of Chittering for construction of a pavilion at Muchea Oval; 
  • $500,000 to the City of Armadale for the construction of a pavilion at William Skeet Reserve; 
  • $400,000 to the Town of Cottesloe for the replacement of Anderson Pavilion; 
  • $232,833 to the City of Canning for the upgrade of change rooms at Coker Park, Cannington; 
  • $400,000 to the Town of Cambridge for the construction of change rooms and storage at Alderbury Sportsground, Floreat. 
The CSRFF Annual and Forward Planning grants enable local not-for-profit sport, recreation or community groups and local governments to develop the infrastructure to increase participation in sport and recreation. 

The program prioritises projects that use some of the allocated funding to create environments where women are more likely to feel comfortable and participate in sport. 

This may include change room upgrades, lockable showers and more toilet cubicles in place of urinals. 

The funding is part of $12 million through the CSRFF fast tracked earlier this year to support WA's economy and create jobs as part of the State's COVID-19 recovery.
