Netball and tennis courts upgrade

Riverside Golf, Tennis and Netball Centre

Council has been hard at work progressing the master plans for Fairbairn Park and the Riverside Golf, Tennis and Netball Centre. We have recently completed a number of projects with more upgrades on the way.

Sports field lighting

We are currently installing lights on oval 9 at Fairbairn Park and expect to have them up and running in August. These works a will help address the needs of the current and future users of the reserve.

Netball and tennis facilities

We are undertaking a major upgrade at the Riverside Golf, Tennis and Netball Centre to be delivered over the coming years. This project will be delivered in two phases.

Phase one

The first phase of the project will include new facilities to support netball and tennis at the centre and includes:

  • new tennis and netball courts
  • temporary toilets and change rooms
  • additional pedestrian walkways
  • new seating, lighting and fencing
  • landscaping works.

We were recently successful in securing $1.5 million from the State Government towards this phase of the project and we have been working closely with key stakeholders to develop plans for the new courts (pdf, 3MB).

We have also established a Project Control Group with representatives from local residents, sports and park users to help guide the project over the coming year.

Works are due to begin in September and be completed in early 2019.

Phase two

This phase of the project includes the construction of a new community sports pavilion.

The new community pavilion will provide modern, and accessible change rooms and facilities to support competition and training at the centre as well as space for other community uses. We will provide further updates as the project progresses and we will be seeking your input on the designs next year.

We are seeking support from the Victorian and Federal Government to help us to deliver this infrastructure.

Carpark improvements

We will be making carpark improvements at the northern end of Woods Street in 2019, with further carpark upgrades along Woods Street to follow.

Stay up to date

We will continue to provide updates to residents and park users on all the upgrades happening at Fairbairn Park and we will be seeking your input along the way.

You can also register your interest to receive updates via email by sending your contact details to communityfacilities@mvcc.vic.gov.au.
