Turnstiles restored at Subiaco Oval
The turnstiles at Subiaco Oval have now been reinstated, helping to honour the cultural contribution football has made to the City over the years.
Subiaco Oval is a historically significant place for local residents and the wider Western Australian community, and the City strongly advocated for improvements to the iconic entry gate to help conserve the oval’s heritage.
Subiaco Mayor Penny Taylor said the reinstatement of the turnstiles was a great outcome for the community.
“We’ve been working towards the reinstatement of the turnstiles at Subiaco Oval for some years now so it’s great to see this outcome which will help to conserve the oval’s heritage for generations to come,” she said.
“The heritage gates with the turnstiles now form a welcoming entry statement to Subiaco Oval for the Subiaco and wider Perth communities.
“This is possible because of the commitment of Jolimont resident, David Murray, a local history buff and his great work on this project.”
To help celebrate significant public and community events, special lighting is now in place at the gates.
DevelopmentWA are encouraging City of Subiaco residents to send their special lighting requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, for special dates in January. Most colours and actions, such as pulse and sparkle are achievable.
