Game on at Ford and Binnak Parks

Vic Department of Transport

Major upgrades at Ford Park in Bellfield and Binnak Park in Watsonia North are now complete, ready to help local sports clubs thrive as we build North East Link.

As major construction progresses, sports grounds across Melbourne’s north-east are being upgraded with improved playing surfaces, flood lights and at least 6 brand-new accessible pavilions that include female change rooms.

Binnak Park, Watsonia North

Upgrades include new cricket nets, AFL/cricket oval, field lighting, female friendly change rooms and tree planting to green the area. The new pavilion will also provide a great view for spectators as well as improved car parking on the northern and southern sides of the site.

The upgraded Binnak Park will benefit Parade St Damians Junior Football Club as well as the Plenty Valley Cricket Club and Watsonia Sporting Club, who will make it their temporary home during major construction of North East Link. The grounds will be available for the community when not used by local clubs.
