Construction of the Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3 is underway at Erle Scott Reserve and is set to transform the space into a community hub.
For the next six months the site will be closed to the public, including the playground and skate park.
The existing information shelter will be replaced with an electronic board, which will provide new information to tourists and residents.
The $2.7 million project works includes new all abilities play equipment and nature play space, shelters, BBQs, seating and landscaping.
A formal amphitheatre will be constructed and a skateable link between the existing skate park and Forrest Road will be created.
Capel Shire Chief Executive Officer Paul Sheedy said developing this area would bring vibrancy to the town, attract visitors and allow more events to take place in the Shire.
Mr Sheedy said sustainability was a critical component of the project, therefore some of the existing trees on the site would remain and sustainable display gardens were part of the concept design.
Capel Shire Council awarded Perkins (WA) Pty Ltd the tender for the Capel Civic Precinct Stage 3 Development works at its December council meeting.
The new amenity building was completed early last month and will remain open to the public during construction.
