Perth Glory captain Jacob Burns and former Dutch international Victor Sikora today joined the Minister for Sport, Terry Waldron to help launch the new $5 million Frye Park development in Kelmscott.

Minister Waldron and Armadale Mayor Linton Reynolds officially opened the new Frye Park pavilion and reserve - a project funded by the City of Armadale, State Government, Federal Government and local sports clubs.

In the same area only four months ago, the devastating 6 February bushfire directly affected many residents and members of the area and the local soccer club - the launch of Frye Park development is a major step forward for the community.

To celebrate, Jacob Burns joined the festival, participating in a skills session on Frye Park-s state-of-the-art playing surface with local school children from Clifton Hills Primary.

“This is a wonderful facility and it-s great to be out in the City of Armadale in the local community,” Burns said

Frye Park is a sporting reserve used by 34 junior and senior sporting teams, featuring: 2 senior soccer pitches/ 4 junior soccer pitches; 1 senior/junior cricket oval; two cricket wickets; four full-sized cricket practice nets; parking for 100 vehicles; outdoor basketball/netball court; flood-lighting; playground equipment; pavilion for a range of community and recreational activities including functions, meetings and club events.
