Multi-million dollar works continue Errington Reserve transformation

Summary

Work has begun on the new $4.3million sports and community pavilion being built at Errington Reserve in St Albans.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Lucinda Congreve said the new pavilion is part of the ongoing transformation of Errington Reserve, guided by the Errington Reserve Precinct Master Plan.

“There’s been a lot of change happening at Errington Reserve in recent years and there’s plenty more to come.

“We’ve completed the demolition of the old pavilion and unused meals on wheels building, and have poured the slab for the new sports and community pavilion.

“Over the coming months the community can look forward to seeing the pavilion take shape.

“Work is also moving along quickly with the new synthetic tennis courts valued at $2.4 million at the reserve.

“The three courts being constructed next to the pavilion already have concrete courts poured, light poles are about to be installed, and synthetic grass will following in the coming weeks.

“The multi-use hard court near Percy Street is also moving along. Concrete will be poured shortly for the court base.

“We can’t wait to deliver the new pavilion and all of these other amazing facilities to the community,” Cr Congreve said.

Other improvements undertaken at the popular Errington Reserve and surrounds over recent years, include:

  • Construction of the St Albans Community Centre and the Bowery Theatre which replaced the old Errington Community Centre
  • Development of Alice’s Playspace community park
  • The upgrade and bold makeover of the connecting Princess Street inspired by the work of Brimbank-grown artist and provocateur, the late Leigh Bowery.

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