Sport and Recreation Facilities
Sport and Recreation facilities play an important role in the provision of quality facilities where people can be physically active.
Of all the partnerships the department has, perhaps none is as important as the relationship with local government, which is where the services and programs we help provide are delivered through the provision of facilities. The partnership is a positive example of how two tiers of government work together to provide mutually-beneficial outcomes for communities through local sports and recreational groups, helping them to develop facilities which will enable as many people as possible to enjoy a more active lifestyle.
CSRFF provides Western Australian Government financial assistance to community groups and local government authorities to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation.
The program aims to increase participation in sport and recreation, with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of sustainable, good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.
Through CSRFF, the State Government invests $20 million annually towards the development of high-quality, physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation.
The Department of Sport and Recreation has developed a long-term approach to improving the planning, design and management of sport and recreation facilities.
We do this by providing leadership, information, education and support to the planners, designers and managers of facilities within the industry. The department provides a series of publications for sporting and recreational facilities to assist with facilities and planning.
