Lights Camera Action at Maida Vale Reserve

22 January 2022 2:15 PM

The City is pleased to announce that works have begun on the Maida Vale Reserve sports lighting project. The new sports lighting will provide improved lighting for both Kalamunda United Football Club (KUFC) and Kalamunda Rangers, which host teeball, softball, and baseball.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said, “Our public open spaces, reserves and sporting facilities are the heart of our community.”

“Thousands of local residents and visitors of all ages visit sporting reserves to keep active, get fit, or watch some live sport.”

Located within the City of Kalamunda, Maida Vale Reserve is nestled within the Perth foothills and can be accessed from either Ridge Hill Road or Acacia Road (off Gooseberry Hill Road). ACROD parking is available from the Acacia Road access and there is parking for over 100 vehicles within the Reserve, with many under shade.

This project is a part of the City’s commitment to improving the Maida Vale Reserve sporting precinct in line with their adopted Masterplan for the site. In addition to the City of Kalamunda funding, the project is being supported by the State Government through the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund and a contribution from the KUFC.

The improvements will increase opportunities for the community to participate in physical activities, be more active and ultimately lead a healthier lifestyle.

Maida Vale was settled in 1873 by William Henry Mead. He built a home in the Ridge Hill area, and established an orchard named ‘Orangedale’. The name of Maida Vale was chosen as the district name by a public meeting of local residents in 1910. The Maida Vale Reserve is also home to Maida Vale Tennis Club and the Governor Stirling Archers Archery Club.
