The community is invited to stay informed on the progress of the North Park Multipurpose Clubroom Project.
North Park currently provides a great opportunity for organised and casual community participation throughout the reserve for many individuals and groups.
There has been significant consultation and specific projects undertaken in recent years since a tour of neighbouring developments in Moyston, Beaufort and Rupanyup in November 2010 to the completion of a Master Plan in 2011. Outcomes of the master plan have been completed projects exceeding $1m such as a state of the art synthetic athletics track, upgraded netball courts, tennis court lighting with synthetic surfaces, sports oval lighting, upgraded cricket training nets, flood mitigation ponds, walking paths and associated landscaping.
This club room project is for the final design and construction of a multipurpose facility that will contain multi-sport female friendly and unisex change rooms, public amenities and social space.
In January 2018 council formed the Stawell Recreation Advisory Group to provide participation in higher level projects around reserves such as North Park and Central Park and since May’s announcement of funding from the State Government has provided significant input into the first stage of concept design for the new clubroom facility.
This project will progress now to full designs, then anticipated commencement of construction in June 2019 with completion estimated to be July 2020.
