Ringwood Cricket Club, Ringwood Football Club and Ringwood Spiders will soon have access to a brand new ground, with Council currently rebuilding Russell Lucas Oval at Jubilee Park.

The extensive works will include new drainage, irrigation, fencing, and improvements to the ground contours  – making it a state of the art playing surface.

There will also be new turf centre wickets and turf and synthetic practice wickets making it easier to practice in a controlled environment. With the works taking a number of months I thank the clubs for their patience and for relocating to other regional facilities. I’m sure they will find it will be worth the wait once they are able to return to the redeveloped ground.

While the works are being undertaken some areas of the reserve have been closed to the public.
