Construction of a $5.7 million sporting hub in Williams Landing that will include two ovals, six tennis courts and cricket nets, is set to get underway.
Fencing has been installed around the site of the future Williams Landing Boulevard Reserve, with landscaping and construction of the fields about to start.
Wyndham City’s Sports Development Portfolio Holder, Cr Peter Maynard, said it was exciting to see work start on the major project.
“The Williams Landing Boulevard Reserve is going to be a centre of activity for the Williams Landing and wider community,” Cr Maynard said.
“The two sporting ovals are being designed to be flexible so they can cater for multiple sports, including AFL, soccer and cricket.”
“There will also be tennis courts and a children’s playground, while in the future there will be netball courts, and a half basketball court. The construction of a pavilion will also provide change rooms and community meeting rooms.”
The first stage of construction of the Reserve is due to be completed by November this year, while construction of the pavilion will start next financial year.
Council will be working with the community in the lead up to the completion of the project to establish which future sporting clubs will use the Reserve.
