WORK STARTS ON COMMUNITY MULTI-SPORT PARK IN DANDENONG
A new multi-sport park will soon be up and running in Dandenong, thanks to over a half a million dollars in funding from the Victorian Government.
Member for Dandenong and Minister for Youth, the Hon Minister Gabrielle Williams, MP, marked the start of construction of the multi-sport park at a sod turn with City of Greater Dandenong Mayor, Councillor Roz Blades, AM.
The new community multi-sport park will feature a multi-sport court for a range of recreational activities, including basketball, netball and futsal. The new multi-sport park will also have enhanced safety features such as lighting and CCTV.
Located at the corner of Cadle and George Street within the Revitalising Central Dandenong precinct, the new multi-sport court is being delivered by Development Victoria on its land, in collaboration with City of Greater Dandenong.
Approximately $650,000 has been committed to fund the new community park, with the State Government funding over $550,000 and the City of Greater Dandenong contributing approximately $100,000.
Development Victoria will deliver the multi-sport court as part of the Revitalising Central Dandenong initiative, in collaboration with the City of Greater Dandenong.
The Revitalising Central Dandenong initiative is a $290 million project, initiated by the State Government in 2006, to transform central Dandenong. This long-term project is excepted to attract more than $1.2 billion in private sector investment, while creating 5,000 jobs and enhancing Dandenong’s appeal as a great place to live, work and visit.
The new multi-sport park is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
