Kalamunda Community Centre
Construction on the $6.6 million multi-purpose Kalamunda Community Centre Building at Jorgensen Park is set to commence early next year.
The Centre, funded by Federal and State Governments and the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre, will replace the Jorgensen Park Pavilion, which has reached its end of life.
Council adopted the centre’s design in June 2019, following extensive consultation with the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre and Community Reference Group.
Mayor John Giardina said, “We are excited to confirm completion of the Centre’s design and look forward to delivering this much needed facility for our community by 2021. I would like to thank the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre and Community Reference Group for their involvement and valued contribution to this project over the last couple of years.”
Key features of the design include seven activity rooms, two halls, office space, a kitchen, bathrooms, outdoor play areas and a viewing deck. Timber and stone design textures will give the building a natural feel, paying tribute to its surrounds. The project is currently in final stages of design documentation prior to calling for the construction tender.
The City’s new Kalamunda Community Centre is funded from the Federal Government ($1 Million), Lotterywest ($2.5 Million) and the State Government of Western Australia ($3 Million) with a $150,000 contribution from the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre.
