The new multipurpose community and sports hub will be home to Croydon City Soccer Club and Maroondah’s Burmese/Myanmar community. The facility is being funded by Council with $2 million from the Australian Government and $2 million from the Victorian Government.

These works form part of the plan for the reserve, which also includes upgrades to the open space and accessibility within the precinct with improved lighting, signage and carparking.

Key components of the 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.
