FRANKSTON Council has outlined a plan to make Centenary Park in Frankston the home of gymnastics and tennis.

The project is part of council’s ‘Future Frankston’ initiative, and is reliant on state or federal government funding to help get the project completed.

Frankston Council has made a contribution of $11.5 million, and is lobbying the federal government for additional support.

Frankston Council Mayor Cr Colin Hampton called on Member for Dunkley Chris Crewther to help contribute to the cause.

“Now is the time for Chris Crewther to set his sights on other vital sporting upgrades that our community desperately needs at both Centenary Park and Jubilee Park,” Cr Hampton said.

“Council has been working alongside all relevant stakeholders to develop plans for a new and permanent home for gymnastics and tennis at Centenary Park and an expanded indoor stadium at Jubilee Park.”

The planned new regional hub for gymnastics and tennis at Centenary Park will include a dedicated and fully equipped gymnastics centre, 16 new competition ready tennis courts, female friendly change rooms, a cafeteria, and function spaces.

“Council has already committed $11 million towards Centenary Park and $10.5 million towards Jubilee Park,” Cr Hampton said.

“We need state and federal funding to deliver these important community projects that can’t wait any longer.”
