The redevelopment was expected to cost $26.5 million when the election commitment was made last year but has since increased to $32.5 million due to current market conditions and the rise in construction costs.
Sport and Recreation Minister David Templeman today announced the State's additional contribution to achieve the integrated facility and to deliver the project in line with the intent of the election commitment.
The State Government's total contribution to the project is now $25 million, with the Town of East Fremantle contributing the remaining funding and undertaking further planning, design and value management to reduce the project cost as much as possible.
The project includes a redeveloped playing surface for the football oval and floodlighting, new synthetic bowling green, unisex change rooms, redeveloped playgroup and child nursing facilities for East Freo Playgroup, dog exercise area, skate zone, community gardens, commercial gym, and new shared facility with café, bar, kitchen and function rooms.
