The City of Canning has awarded the construction tender for its $2 million upgrade of Hossack Park Pavilion in Parkwood with the works aiming to even the playing field for male and female players of all abilities.

The tender has been awarded to LKS Constructions (Western Australia), as announced at the November Ordinary Council Meeting.

The park upgrade includes a raft of accessibility improvements, as well as a building extension to cater to the growing membership base of the Pavilion’s three resident sporting clubs. 

The building will be extended, allowing for additional storage and a new umpire change room, first aid room and club meeting room, as well as provision of an all-weather shelter area for spectators. 

The refurbished pavilion will feature upgraded change rooms to cater for female players, including lockable individual showers and more toilet cubicles.

Accessibility improvements include additional accessible shower facilities, an upgrade of the existing universal access toilets to meet compliance standards and improving functionality and layout of the existing toilets. 

City of Canning Mayor, Patrick Hall, said the upgrade would provide a more functional and welcoming environment for all club members, spectators and visitors. 

“The upgrade will create a welcoming, inclusive and functional space, which will allow the resident clubs to increase their numbers, as well as providing more accessible toilet facilities for the many public users of the park,” Mayor Hall said. 

“This is just one of many renewal projects the City has in the works over the coming years to ensure our facilities continue to cater to the needs of our diverse community.”

In addition to pavilion upgrades, sports lighting upgrades are also planned for Hossack Park in the 2022-2023 financial year, with plans to convert existing lighting to energy efficient LEDs, with lower lighting fixtures installed to provide passive lighting for dog walkers and exercisers. 

Irrigation system improvements are kicking off in December, with construction on the pavilion due to start in January 2023 and continue until mid-2023.
