Hill Street realignment and car park works
Works in March 2022 include:
- 63 asphalt car spaces, with 2 accessible car spaces at the Kevin Collopy Pavilion end
- 20 gravel parallel car spaces for overflow parking along the Hill Street access road
- Widening of the existing Trotting Track sports field (third oval) for use as a football, cricket training and competition venue
- Improved access and vehicle flow to the Kevin Collopy Pavilion and playground
- Lighting for the road and pathways to improve safety for park users
Enlarging the Trotting Track
The existing Trotting Track (third oval) is being enlarged and improved to support its increased use as a football and cricket training and competition venue.
Works will involve the installation of an automatic irrigation system, sub drainage and a turf rootzone layer. Perimetre oval fencing, AFL goals and ball stop fences at either end of the oval will be also be installed.
Four poles of LED sports field lighting will be installed on both the widened Trotting Track (third oval) and the John Coburn oval.
The poles will replace the existing inefficient lights on John Coburn oval.
The 150 lux level lights will facilitate more opportunities for regional football and cricket, including an expansion of women’s football and cricket at this premier sporting hub.
