Cen­tre look­ing spank­ing new

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Miles Park Com­mu­nity Cen­tre is look­ing bet­ter than ever af­ter a $1.6 million re­fur­bish­ment.

The cen­tre was of­fi­cially opened on Thurs­day. It has new change rooms, stor­age ar­eas, toi­lets, bet­ter light­ing, a new play­ground and more.

Fund­ing came from the City of Bel­mont, State and Fed­eral gov­ern­ments and Lot­tery­west to make the fa­cil­ity modern and fresh for lo­cal clubs and groups.

The Bel­mont Ju­nior Soc­cer Club is based out of the Miles Park Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, with about 260 chil­dren of more than 38 na­tion­al­i­ties com­ing to­gether to play sport, have fun and make friends.

Club pres­i­dent Martin Con­nolly said the re­fur­bish­ment was look­ing fan­tas­tic.

“It won’t make any dif­fer­ence to how we play or do things, but it’s cer­tainly a lovely fa­cil­ity. It’s been the envy of peo­ple who’ve come round to see it,” he said.

Mr Con­nolly said his club works with chil­dren from age 3 and up and get­ting them out on the field had a big im­pact on the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.
