Sports pavilion upgrades

sports pavilion upgrade

In the 2017/18 financial year, Council has increased its funding for upgrades to sporting pavilions.

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.

Here is more information on current and future sports pavilion upgrades:

Scammell Reserve

Scammell Reserve Pavilion

Up to $2.7 million will be spent on a new pavilion at Scammell Reserve (image above), which is home to six sporting clubs. The pavilion will provide female friendly change rooms and toilets, improved spectator views, and a large multi-purpose community meeting space.

The State Government has contributed $500,000 towards the project. Works are expected to be completed by mid-2018.

Council resolved on the project in August 2016. Please read the relevant Notice of Motion which was carried at the 30 August 2016 Council meeting - 7.9 WA Scammell Reserve Pavilion Upgrade Project.

Central Reserve South

About $1.6 million has been allocated for a new pavilion in Central Reserve South (Glen Waverley). The construction project started in February 2017 and is due to be completed by the end of 2017.

Council wants to develop the Central Reserve sports precinct to create a truly community-based centre that caters for a variety of sporting activities and community requirements.

Columbia Park Sports Pavilion

Up to $1.7 million has been allocated to the redevelopment of the sports pavilion at Columbia Park (Wheelers Hill), with the State Government contributing $300,000. Construction started in October 2017 and is due to be completed by late August 2018.

Council resolved on the project in August 2016. Please read the relevant Notice of Motion which was carried at the 30 August 2016 Council meeting - 7.8 Columbia Park Reserve Pavilion Upgrade Project.

Completed pavilion upgrades

Argyle Reserve

Argyle Reserve new sports pavilion

 

Argyle Reserve - existing and new pavilion

 

Council has completed a new sports pavilion in Argyle Reserve (Hughesdale).

The new pavilion replaces the existing pavilion, which was no longer meeting the needs of our community. For example, the new pavilion will have change rooms and improved toilet provision for female sports participants, facilities which are not provided in the current pavilion. The new pavilion also includes a larger multi-purpose space to hold club activities such as training courses.

The new pavilion is in a different location to the existing pavilion (as shown on the diagram above). This is because Melbourne Water and South East Water intend to upgrade the drain and sewer under the existing pavilion in future years. In the new location, the pavilion will not be affected by any future sewer and drain works.

Electra Community Centre

Ceres Calisthenics club

 

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

An upgrade of the pavilion was completed in May 2017.

The Ceres Calisthenics Club, which is based at the centre, has a current membership of 200 girls and women. 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, additional storage space, a secure trailer park, and a direct connection between existing and new studio spaces. The building extension will not extend past the line of the existing retaining wall around the Dog Obedience Club clubhouse immediately to the north.

The $671,000 project was jointly funded by Council and the Ceres Calisthenics Club.

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 multipurpose space, the change rooms, the storage areas and the 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 while the Federal Government contributed $250,000.

Ashwood Reserve

Construction of the new pavilion at Ashwood Reserve, off Winbirra Parade, was completed in November 2015. The pavilion delivers:

  • new change rooms, storage areas and referee facilities for sports clubs;
  • upgraded and female friendly amenities for home and away teams; and
  • sustainable design features including energy efficient lighting, double glazed windows and the use of sustainable materials and finishes.

The project was funded by Council ($670,000) and the Federal Government ($150,000).

Freeway Reserve

The sports pavilion at Freeway Reserve (Mulgrave) has recently received a $300,000 upgrade.

The existing shower and toilet facilities were upgraded and expanded to ensure the facility can cater for female and junior use. This is beneficial to the community, especially as the ground's tenant Brandon Park Football Club has female soccer teams.
