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 has started work building the new sporting pavilion for the growing Carrum Downs and Skye community, with the support of the Victorian Government and Member for Carrum, Ms Sonya Kilkenny MP.
The new multi-purpose pavilion at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve will provide quality facilities for local sports clubs and also for general recreation use by the local community.
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.
Council is delivering other works recommended as part of the Reserve’s master plan including an upgrade to sports ground lighting for both ovals.
Synthetic Multipurpose Sporting Field
A new $2.2 million project includes a synthetic multipurpose sporting field, central cricket wicket, sports field lighting, fencing and various line markings.
The Victorian Minister for Sport the Hon John Eren and Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny recently announced a $500,000 commitment towards this local project. Council’s contribution is $1.7 million.
The synthetic surface will revolutionise the playing and training experience for sporting clubs, especially with the increasingly high demand in female and junior participation.
1st Carrum Downs Scouts
The hall currently occupied by the 1st Carrum Downs Scouts is set to be removed in 2018 to allow for the realignment of the reserve entry and a family recreation area. Scouts representatives were made aware of this early in the discussions and had accepted they would need to move. In the meantime, Council has agreed to extend their occupancy until the end of 2017.
The Scouts' preference is for a standalone facility which they costed at approximately $800,000. A number of Council and state owned options were presented; however, the Scouts ultimately rejected these.
Council appreciates the opportunities that Scouts provides young Australians and looks forward to working with Scouts representatives to rehouse the 1st Carrum Downs Scouts for a strong and prosperous future.
The new pavilion is due to be completed in winter 2018.
