$6.2 million for Errington sports pavilion and tennis courts

Work to start soon

Construction of a $4.3 million sports and community pavilion and new tennis courts valued at about $1.9 million will start soon at Errington Reserve, St Albans.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Lucinda Congreve said the new pavilion and tennis courts would be built as part of the ongoing implementation of the Errington Reserve Precinct Master Plan.

“We’ve made a lot of improvements to the popular Errington Reserve over recent years, including the construction of the St Albans Community Centre and Bowery Theatre to replace the old Errington Community Centre; and the development of Alice’s Playspace community park.

“The upgrade of connecting Princess Street is also currently underway and is expected to be completed soon.

“We look forward to delivering this new sports and community pavilion and tennis courts at Errington Reserve soon,” the Mayor said.

The old pavilion at Errington Reserve, and unused meals on wheels building, will be demolished to allow for the new pavilion to be built.

The current tennis club courts and pavilion will be replaced with three new synthetic grass courts, and one multi-use hard court, including LED lighting, in another section of the reserve – near the new sports and community pavilion.

Future works planned for Errington Reserve include a sportsground reconstruction/realignment, and expansion of the park and playground.

The pavilion and tennis courts construction are funded under Council’s 2018/2019 Capital Works Program.
