A NEW multipurpose synthetic sports facility has been completed at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve.
The facility is home to a new central cricket wicket, sportsfield lighting, fencing, safety netting, and line markings. The ground is accredited for use by three sporting codes – football, cricket, and Australian rules football.
The $2.85 million facility was jointly funded by the state government and Frankston Council.
Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “I am so excited to have been able to help deliver this project for clubs like the Carrum Downs Junior Football Club and the Carrum Downs Cricket Club.”
“The new synthetic pitch is a fantastic venue that will open up new opportunities for so many players at this wonderful local reserve,” she said. “I look forward to seeing more and more people get back into local sport.”
Frankston councillor David Asker said “the quality surface and sports lighting means this pitch will be used by several clubs and school groups for soccer, cricket and football during the day and evenings throughout the year.”
