Five new sporting fields are now open at Point Cook’s newest active open space, Webster Street Reserve (formerly Bensonhurst Parade Reserve).
The turf has now been established on a senior cricket oval and four soccer pitches, marking completion of stage two of this mammoth $15.95 million Wyndham City project.
This follows the recent opening of seven tennis courts and one multi-use court, cricket nets and landscaping at Webster Street Reserve.
Meanwhile, construction has begun on two sporting pavilions, which will deliver change rooms, social spaces, storage, kitchens, umpire rooms and a car park and landscaping.
The pavilions, which will service cricket, soccer and tennis clubs, have received $800,000 through the Victorian Government’s Local Sports Infrastructure Fund.
Wyndham City Active City portfolio holder Cr Peter Maynard said the new sporting fields provided fit-for-purpose facilities for both established and new clubs and organisations.
“These five new sporting fields are giving our Point Cook residents first-class sporting facilities to help them lead active, healthier lives,” Cr Maynard said.
“Wyndham City is committed to giving our residents the sport and recreational facilities they need, close to home – and we’re doing just that with Webster Street Reserve.”
