Active development – particularly construction of the expanded Eaton Fair Shopping Centre with its major supermarkets and retailers plus 75+ specialty shops – points to a bright future while natural assets and a commitment to lifestyle, create harmony. This has attracted a diverse population made up of young people, couples, retirees, families and seniors.
Eaton boasts beautifully maintained parks, picnic facilities, reserves, ovals and public open spaces plus a variety of picturesque natural wonders like the Collie River Valley, which draw people to the outdoors.
Committed to supporting and encouraging its residents of all ages – from children to seniors – to be more active, the Shire of Dardanup opened the Eaton Recreation Centre in 2003 which boasts modern gymnasium equipment plus indoor basketball/netball courts, crèche, meeting rooms and a cutting edge group fitness program for adults and kids alike.
Residential estates provide quality options for modern surburban living while facilities such as two primary schools, a high school, medical specialists, two over 55 aged care facilities and more ensure the diverse population’s needs are adequately met.
