Sports pavilion upgrades

sports pavilion upgrade

Council is responding to the growing number of people (including girls and women) who want to play sport.

Pavilions built decades ago often don't have female-friendly toilets or change rooms, so whenever pavilions are upgraded, they are made female-friendly.

Our most recent sports pavilion upgrades include:

The new pavilion is in a different location to the old one because Melbourne Water and South East Water intend to upgrade the drain and sewer under the old pavilion in future years. In the new location, the pavilion will not be affected by any sewer and drain works.

Electra Community Centre

Ceres Calisthenics club

 

The Electra Community Centre (Ashwood) was extended so more people can participate in calisthenics.

An upgrade of the pavilion was completed in May 2017.

The centre was operating at capacity and was unable to accommodate a growing demand for additional programming space. 

The extension delivered a new studio space, extra storage space, a secure trailer park and a direct connection between old and new studio spaces.

The $671,000 project was jointly funded by Council and the Ceres Calisthenics Club, which is based at the centre.

Capital Reserve

An upgrade of the pavilion at Capital Reserve (Glen Waverley) was completed in October 2015.

The pavilion is used by the Glen Waverley Junior Soccer Club and the Glen Waverley Hawks Sports Club (which includes the Glen Waverley Hawks Cricket Club and Glen Waverley Hawks Auskick Centre).

The works have made the facility more suitable for use by female sportspeople and people with disabilities. The works included:

  • Upgrades of the multi-purpose space, change rooms, storage areas and referee facilities
  • Adding new toilets and a shower
  • An upgrade of the sewer
  • Sustainable design features including energy-efficient lighting, double-glazed windows and the use of sustainable materials and finishes

Council contributed about $500,000 towards the pavilion upgrade and the Federal Government contributed $250,000.

The sports pavilion at Freeway Reserve (Mulgrave) received a $300,000 upgrade in 2016. The existing shower and toilet facilities were upgraded and expanded to ensure the facility caters for female and junior use. This has benefited the community, especially the ground's tenant Brandon Park Football Club, which has female soccer teams.
