STIRLING mayor Giovanni Italiano indulges in some friendly sledging outside the new $4.66 million changing rooms at Grenville Reserve.

After seven years planning and work, the rickety club and change rooms in Tuart Hill have been replaced by a state-of-the-art sporting and multi-use facility.

Users include the Titan’s Woman’s Football Club and Tuart Hill Cricket Club.

Cr Italiano says he is proud of the facility.

“The community are absolutely ecstatic at the opening of this new facility—which will be called Stirling Community Centre—Tuart Hill,” he says.

“Activities like yoga and bridge can now also be accommodated in the community centre as well as use of meeting rooms and function rooms.”

The facility includes an external accessible ramp, public toilets, public tennis courts, outdoor exercise equipment and a picnic area. It also has public change rooms and toilet facilities for local schools and other reserve users.
