Works on the new $4.25 million Ballam Park Pavilion started today and will bring in a new era for the Peninsula Strikers Junior Football Club and the Frankston community with state of the art sports facilities.
Frankston City Mayor, Michael O’Reilly said the new pavilion will allow for flexibility in the scheduling of the female soccer competition and provide amazing facilities for this growing club.
“This $3.8 million investment from Frankston City Council demonstrates our commitment to providing quality sporting facilities for all residents,” said the Mayor.
“The new pavilion at Ballam Park will ensure female players feel welcome and will no longer have to share change rooms with inadequate facilities.
“These works will contribute to significant opportunities to grow the profile of female soccer throughout Frankston City.”
The project is supported by the Victorian State Government ($100,000), the Federal Government ($300,000) and The Peninsula Strikers Junior Football Club ($50,000).
The new pavilion will include eight female-friendly change rooms, umpire change rooms, a new kitchen and kiosk, a large community room and meeting room, along with storage and first aid facilities.
Once completed, the new Pavilion will add value to projects already undertaken at Ballam Park, including the Ballam Park East Pavilion, the playground redevelopment and the new fully enclosed dog agility park.
