Overport Park Sports Pavilion
Overport Park is an important reserve for the community and sporting groups. It supports the second largest tennis and junior football clubs in the municipality, one of the largest cricket clubs in the area and two arts-based community organisations.
Due to large growth in the number of female participants in football and cricket in general, and at Overport Park specifically, led to the need for female compliant amenities within sports pavilions servicing AFL and cricket.
The new Overport Park Pavilion replaces the existing pavilion, toilet block and carpark. The new pavilion provides modern and compliant facilities to support male and female participation in AFL and cricket among other sports.
Development of Overport Park has been guided by the 2000 Master Plan however recent proposals for the sports facilities have also been driven by the 2013 Frankston City Council Sports Development Plan.
Total project budget of $4.6M, primarily made up of Council Rates with contributions from the Victorian Government and Local Sports Clubs.
