Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve
Council has completed a number of improvements to the Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve on Wedge Road and more is yet to come thanks to successful advocacy for state sports funding.
Council is building a new community sporting pavilion and car park at the Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve, with a total project cost estimated as $3.8 million.
The project and costs will be spread over two financial years. Council’s 2016-2017 budget includes $1.3 million to complete the project design and start construction. This is made possible thanks to a $1.05 million contribution from the Victorian Government.
The remaining amount will be allocated under next year’s budget and includes the funds raised from recent sales of adjoining land.
The pavilion will be located next to the western oval and is being designed to best meet the needs of reserve users. The pavilion will also offer a flexible social space available to the community.
The commence of the new Pavillon will start on Monday 15 May 2017, with works anticipated to be complete in mid 2018.
Council is delivering other works recommended as part of the Reserve’s master plan including an upgrade to sports ground lighting for both ovals.
Council has already completed the following projects on-site:
- Full refurbishment of the Steve Thompson Oval (oval one)
- Upgraded cricket practice nets
- Improved traffic flow for the main reserve entry and a new access point
- New car parking area
- Sealing of the surface between the pavilion and oval one
- A new family recreation area
- A shared path system with bench seating, tree planting and landscaping
A 2016 update to the master plan for Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve currently outlines other priority projects including:
- Resurface oval two (western oval)
- Support establishment of additional clubs' presence on-site
- Develop the current village green into a multiuser synthetic or grass sports field
- Develop a regional playground
- Develop tennis and netball facilities
- Consolidate toilet facilities
- Upgrade canteen and social room facilities, player change rooms and bathroom facilities
- Develop an outdoor events area
Combined, these projects would require a significant additional investment of more than $6 million.
The Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve currently accommodates clubs offering Auskick, football, cricket, netball and tennis.
