The plan includes the redevelopment of the current sports pavilion into a new multipurpose community sports hub, which will also be home to the Victorian Burmese/Myanmar community.

Key components of the enhancement plan include:

  • new multipurpose community sports hub
  • new main soccer pitch with lighting
  • synthetic soccer pitch with lighting
  • warm up pitch (subject to external funding)
  • electronic scoreboards (subject to external funding)
  • enhanced open space
  • relocation and improvement of existing playground
  • landscape improvements
  • improved car parking amenity and lighting

Improved lighting across the precinct, and signage including off lead dog areas and wayfinding, have also been identified as priorities for the precinct in the enhancement plan.

The hub is being partly funded by the Federal Government following a $2m commitment from Deakin MP Michael Sukkar in 2019.
