News Update 8 November 2017
Ernest Johnson Reserve

Construction works for stage one of the $10.5m redevelopment of Ernest Johnson Reserve are progressing well with the main buildings nearing completion.

This first stage of the project remains on schedule for completion at the end of 2017, with user groups anticipated to move into the new facility in March 2018.

The second stage, which will include demolition of existing buildings, works on the oval and construction of sports facilities, playgrounds and social areas, is scheduled to commence in early 2018.

A key initiative in the City’s Strategic Community Plan, the reserve and its associated buildings are being redeveloped to better accommodate the needs of relevant sports clubs, community groups, the local community and the City, and produce a contemporary, functional and sustainable multi-purpose facility.

EJ Reserve is located in South Perth, bounded by South Tce, Sandgate St and Hensman St.
