Sporting upgrades at Aspendale Gardens Reserve (Kerr Cres)

June 2019:

Council is updating residents on plans to create new sporting facilities in Aspendale Gardens at Kerr Crescent Reserve and to invite you to take part in the next round of community consultation on the project.

The project has been split into two stages with Stage 1 works to begin in coming months to create the sporting fields and provide car parking with the aim of commencing games at the site from April 2020.

Stage 2 works to develop the pavilion would then follow at a later stage.

Council is now seeking input on the proposed design of the car park and sports lighting.

  • 110 car parking bays, including disabled car parking bays
  • Car park lighting
  • Access and exiting from Kerr Crescent
  • Timed access via automatic gate/retractable bollards (permitted access is from sunrise through to 11pm)
  • Landscaping
