Baldivis is one of Perth's fastest growing suburbs, and with further growth forecast in the area, it's essential that the infrastructure can deliver sport and recreation facilities to the local community.
With a larger percentage of young families and children than the rest of the metro area, the demand for sustainable sporting and recreation opportunities is essential for health and social development for those living in Baldivis.
The Baldivis District Sporting Complex will cater to a large number of community sports, providing a mix of indoor and outdoor facilities including nature play and youth recreation opportunities.
It will be able to adapt to participation trends and will engender community pride and health and wellbeing benefits.

- Active Reserves - $21m

The district level sporting and recreation reserve will service residents of Baldivis (north and south) and will provide for district and regional level competitions for the Rockingham population in general.
Estimated jobs will the project create:
- Construction phase (stage 1) - 744 jobs
- Overall project - 2,000 jobs

The new Baldivis District Sporting Complex will be delivered in a few stages from 2021/22, with the 2022/23 financial year being the year that every stage officially opens to the public.
