Sod-turning and works update
Both Oval 1 and Oval 2 continue to develop as the turf establishes critical root structure. With a well-earned rest after the 2017 WAFL season, the turf on Oval 1 will strengthen over the coming summer months. With Oval 2 reaching full coverage, the Demons will be able to share the load on both ovals as the grass is nursed through to maturity.
Construction of the new West Coast Eagles Training, Administration and Community Centre, together with the new home for the Wirrpanda Foundation, will commence prior to the end of September 2017. This is in line with all project planning and approvals.
Representatives of Federal and State Government and the Town recently attended a formal sod turning ceremony at Lathlain Park. The event also recognised the important partnership between the not-for-profit, public and private sector which has enabled this redevelopment to occur.
The Zone 3 project is currently on time and on budget, with completion expected in early 2019.
