THE new multipurpose facility under construction at the Mundaring Recreation Ground has been named Mundaring Arena.
Formerly known as the Mundaring Recreation Centre, Shire of Mundaring Councillors made the decision to rename the complex at the Ordinary Council Meeting held on Tuesday 11 April.
The state-of-the-art facility had been referred to by at least seven different names before its latest inception, Shire President David Lavell said.
"The facility has now reached a construction state where one name needed to be decided upon," he said.
"A range of options were reviewed and the name 'Mundaring Arena' most closely fitted the recommended criteria with the location and purpose of the facility in its name.
"Naming the new facility Mundaring Arena distinguishes it from the overall complex known as the 'Mundaring Recreation Ground' and is more representative of its multipurpose activities," Cr Lavell said.
Mundaring Arena is expected to be completed at the end of 2017.
