Surf park planned for Subi Oval

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A PRO­POSAL for a $120 mil­lion Subi Surf Park at Su­bi­aco Oval will be for­mally pre­sented to the City of Su­bi­aco and Plan­ning Min­is­ter John Day “in the com­ing weeks”.

An MJA Stu­dio and Wave Park Group spokes­woman said the WA Foot­ball Com­mis­sion, which cur­rently has a long-term lease at the oval, and City staff were briefed on the mixe­duse de­vel­op­ment ear­lier this month.

“We un­der­stand that the State Gov­ern­ment and the Su­bi­aco Coun­cil do not cur­rently have a plan for Su­bi­aco Oval,” she said.

“With less than two years re­main­ing be­fore Su­bi­aco’s loss of AFL, we felt the need to of­fer up a bold and vi­sion­ary de­vel­op­ment op­tion, which takes what is best about Su­bi­aco and re­tains sports and open space at its heart.”

The pro­posal in­cludes Aus­tralia’s first man-made wave park, a mar­ket hall, plaza, hos­pi­tal­ity and well­ness venues, up to 220 apart­ments and 52 ter­race homes, and an AFL Hall of Fame.

Su­bi­aco chief ex­ec­u­tive Don Bur­nett said the coun­cil was aware of “a num­ber of op­tions” for the fu­ture of Su­bi­aco Oval.

“We ex­pect to make a rec­om­men­da­tion in the near fu­ture for our pre­ferred use of the broader site,” he said.
