The Future is bright at Hartfield Park

Forrestfield United have continued to improve the facilities at their home stadium, and on Thursday saw the start of a $200k upgrade of the lights at Hartfield Park. The stadium pitch lights will be upgraded in the next couple of weeks, and new floodlights will be installed to cover the hockey pitch. This is in preparation for when the hockey club go into their new facility next year.

Forrie have been promoted to the top flight of WA football this season, and the club will be hosting the best teams in the competition, and with their new grandstand and changing rooms, this is another improvement, and President Andy Osborne said it’s not only for FUSC but for the local community.

“This is a great example of how clubs, local leaders and government can work together to get benefit for the community. The most important aspect of this project is the expanded floodlit training area which will allow our club and others to better use the facilities at Hartfield Park,” he said.

“There will be some disruption during this time but we are working with the contractors to minimise this.”

Osborne said this wouldn’t have been possible if not for the support of a number of people, who have worked tirelessly along with the clubs hard working committee. “We would like to thank Stephen Price MLA Member for Forrestfield and the Department of Sports and Recreation for supporting us and funding the project,” he said. “We are a community club and the whole community will benefit from this.”
