A pavilion with bells and whistles


Mornington Peninsula Shire is pleased to announce the opening of the upgraded sports pavilion at Crib Point Recreation Reserve.

The Shire funded the $2 million upgrades as part of the Sport Capacity Plan and Pavilion Strategy.

The project has involved construction of new home and away change facilities with associated amenities, medical room, storage, umpires change facilities and office space for the Crib Point Football Netball Club and Crib Point Cricket Club at Crib Point Recreation Reserve.

The upgraded pavilion means sporting clubs can now enjoy the required amenities in one space.

The project has consolidated change rooms to the main pavilion, as well as constructed new public toilet facilities.

Prior to the pavilion’s new additions, existing change rooms were provided beneath an existing grandstand, at the nearby public pool and within a portable building.

Quotes attributable to Cerberus Ward Councillor Lisa Dixon:

“We’re working to provide inclusive, accessible and functional community sporting facilities suitable for our clubs and the broader community.
