Monash Council has welcomed the State Government’s funding of $800,000 for the construction of a multi-sport pavilion at Caloola Reserve, Oakleigh.
Minister for Sport John Eren made the announcement today at Caloola Reserve with Member for Oakleigh Steve Dimopoulos.
Monash Mayor Paul Klisaris said the redevelopment of Caloola Reserve was an outstanding project that would be part of a huge revitalisation of this area of Oakleigh, alongside the $23million Oakleigh Recreation Centre redevelopment.
Stage 1 of the project will see the construction of the eight new tennis courts. The second stage will include a new multi-sport pavilion, car parking and hot shot tennis courts/basketball half court.
“We’re grateful to the State Government for this funding which will be put towards these excellent facilities at Caloola Reserve which will meet the future needs of the many clubs that use this facility,” Cr Klisaris said.
“This project is an important one for Council and this funding will assist us to deliver on our commitment for flexible, sustainable, accessible and quality community facilities.
“It’s a huge boost to our long-term vision to make this area of Oakleigh a premier sporting precinct, one we know will deliver significant benefits to our local community.”
