Collegians Amateur Football Club Clubrooms Redevelopment

Collegians Amateur Football Club Clubrooms Redevelopment on David Cruickshank Reserve

The Collegians Football Club Redevelopment was completed on schedule with building works achieving practical completion on 23 October 2015. The building has been named the Adam Armstrong Pavilion.
The building will be officially opened on 19 February 2016. For further information please contact Pollyanne Fisher at the City of Nedlands on 9273 3500.
With the building now complete the city is moving onto the carpark and landscape works. Details of these activities are:

  • The works started on 25 January 2016 and should be completed by 30 March 2016.
  • Works will be undertaken on weekdays between the hours of 7:00 am – 5:00 pm.
  • The proposed redevelopment site encompasses the reserve’s access road and car parking between Beatrice Road and Jutland Parade and adjoins the Collegians Football Club new clubhouse development site within the reserve. 
  • Works include earthworks, formation of car parking surfacing, kerbs and drainage, installation of street furniture items and landscape planting.
  • In order to undertake this work the carpark needs to be clear of traffic and completely clear of parked cars.
  • During this period there will be restricted access from Beatrice Road, we would therefore appreciate if anyone requiring access/parking to the facilities utilise the access/parking off Jutland Parade.

Development of this facility is in line with the City's 10-year Strategic Community Plan which addresses the sport recreational needs of the community and the need to update and renew community infrastructure and assets.
The redevelopment will provide a first class facility for the Western Suburbs.

Background Information

David Cruickshank Reserve is located in the suburb of Dalkeith and is a multi-use facility which caters for tennis, lawn bowls, football, and cricket as well as child care facilities. The buildings located on the site were built in the 1970s and although in reasonable condition they were coming to the end of their useful lives.
The Collegians Football Club operate from the facility and currently play in the “B” Division of the WA Amateur League. In September 2012, a masterplan of the David Cruickshank Reserve was undertaken by the City with the aim of providing a coordinated plan for any future development of the buildings on the reserve. From this it was identified that the Collegian clubrooms were the first of the community buildings that was in need of redevelopment.
The redevelopment of the Collegians Football Clubrooms provides a first class facility for the western suburbs which can be utilised not only as a sporting venue but as a multi-purpose facility which in turn benefits the whole of the community.

The redevelopment has been funded by the City of Nedlands ($1,749,920), the Department for Sport and Recreation ($500,000) and the Collegians Amateur Football Club ($75,000). It will not only meet the needs of the club but it will also provide a facility that the whole community will be able to access.
The new building consists of:

  • A brand new main club room which has a bar and function area catering for up to 150 people.
  • The new facility has three brand new change rooms including facilities for coaches, a medical room, storage and players’ facilities.
  • The main pavilion has a spacious, open area for socialising, including function space, a kitchen, a cool room, and a bar.
  • The football club will be the main users but the new building will be a multi-functional facility that will be available to others for lease for community groups, private events, parties and functions.
