I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating a great addition to the South Metropolitan Region’s community facilities at the grand opening of the John McGrath Hall and Pavilion in March.
In 2015, the City secured $632,000 in funding from the then Liberal State Government’s Department of Sport and Recreation towards the project.
The City of South Perth named these new facilities after none other than my longstanding colleague, John McGrath MLA, Member for South Perth. Having lived there for 25 years and been its representative in parliament for the last 13, I do not think they could have chosen a better namesake!
These facilities will be used by locals, not-for-profit sporting clubs, community groups, local residents and the wider community.
