WORK on a new pavilion at Aspendale Gardens Sports Ground will begin soon.
The $3.6 million projectly is jointly funded by the state government and Kingston Council.
Kingston mayor Steve Staikos says that stage two works at the ground will “add a new state-of-the-art pavilion that includes female friendly facilities to meet the growing numbers of women and girls participating in sports.”
“Like our fantastic new pavilion at Mordialloc’s Jack Grut Reserve, the Aspendale Gardens Sports Ground Pavilion will feature a modular design and build, that allows it to be constructed off-site and then dropped into place. This means less construction noise for residents, and minimal disruption to the site for the clubs and the community while still ensuring a high-quality facility.
“Many of our sporting pavilions were built half a century ago when sport was designed with only men in mind. We are transforming sporting facilities across the city to provide modern facilities with disability access and female-friendly changerooms, so they can be enjoyed by all.
“Council is also due to begin work soon on stage two of the redevelopment of Chadwick Reserve with the proposed Pavilion, playground and drainage works all expected to commence in early 2021.”
