The funding allocated in the State Budget will be subject to further negotiations with the WACA.

Plans for the WACA Ground Improvement Project include a high-performance cricket centre, public aquatic, health and fitness facilities, an all-abilities playground and contemporary event and function spaces.

The WACA Ground Improvement Project is being led by the Western Australian Cricket Association and is one of the most iconic projects being delivered.

The joint deal between the Commonwealth, State and the City of Perth is delivering social and community infrastructure to create a more vibrant and activated city and improve local amenity for inner-city residents.

The Inverarity and Prindiville Stands have been demolished to make way for the redevelopment project and development plans were approved late last year.

A tender for construction will soon be released for the WACA Ground Improvement Project which will inform final delivery costs and timeframes.

The State Government has also committed $22.5 million towards the aquatic facility, which will be jointly funded with the City of Perth ($25 million). The facility will be open to the public and will include a 50 metre, 6-lane pool, cricket-inspired adventure water slides, an indoor learn-to-swim pool and splash pad for all ages.

The redeveloped WACA ground and aquatic facility will form part of a redeveloped East Perth community, with the State Government announcing plans for an inner-city primary school.

The new amenities will support the growing number of people choosing to live in the inner-city.
