Cardinia Shire Council officially opened the Lang Lang Pavilion and Reserve last night.
The major recreation and community precinct is a partnership between the Council, Federal Government and Our Community Company.
Cardinia Shire Council Mayor Councillor Brett Owen officially opened the new precinct with Federal Member for Monash Russell Broadbent MP and representatives from Our Community Company.
“This is an exciting addition for the Lang Lang community and surrounding areas as it provides new facilities for a number of sporting and community groups,” Cr Owen said.
“We have the ideal spot here for our community with sporting and community facilities, parks and open spaces.”
Westernport Ward Councillor Ray Brown said the reserve featured ovals for football and cricket, and netball courts.
“The pavilion is equipped with a multipurpose community space, universally accessible change rooms, a gym, kitchen, umpire facilities and storage space, Cr Brown said.
“This is a state-of-the-art precinct.”
Federal member for Monash Russell Broadbent said he was pleased to attend the official opening event.
“I’d like to see this standard of sporting and recreation facility across all of my electorate. This is a wonderful sporting and community precinct,” he said.
Cardinia Shire Council contributed $5.7 million to the reserve while Our Community Company contributed $3.3 million.
The pavilion was funded through the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund ($1.5 million) and Cardinia Shire Council ($3 million).
The Lang Lang Pavilion and Reserve precinct is located at 200 Caldermeade Road in Caldermeade.
