Dales Park Pavilion and Playground Upgrades

We are pleased to advise that Council is continuing its investment in women’s sport at Dales Park with planning for a new pavilion now underway.

Council is also investing in a new playground for the park.

Pavilion upgrade

The Dales Park Development Plan, developed in 2013 following community consultation, included provision for a new expanded pavilion to respond to the increasing participation in netball in the region. (Read the full Development Plan in the document library)

The proposed pavilion will complement the court surface and car parking improvement works that were undertaken earlier this year.

Following consultation with the netball association and clubs, Council is proposing to build a two-storey pavilion in a central location (slightly north of the existing pavilion) to overlook the courts.

Draft plans for the pavilion also include:

  • training court
  • improved public toilet facilities


A draft plan for the pavilion – including the location and layout – is included in the document library.

Community information session on the proposed pavilion:

Council is holding an information session to keep the community informed about the project.

Playground upgrade:

In a separate project, Council is also improving the playground and barbecue facilities at the park. (see playground bulletin in the document library)

As part of Council’s park renewal program, funding has been allocated to undertake playground and park
refurbishment works at Dales Park, Oakleigh South.

Key elements of the project include:
• removal of existing play items
• a new bigger, better fenced-off playspace with play equipment for all ages
• a combination unit with slides, climbing wall, fi remans pole, net bridge, vee bridge, accessible shop counter and track glide
• a bird’s nest swing and standard swing set for junior and senior
• a climbing net structure with turn over bar
• a double rocker and carousel
• nature play with a sand pit, pebbles and a timber tepee cubby
• a double shelter with picnic tables and barbecue
• park furniture including a drinking fountain, bin & seats;=
• a fitness station
• new path network around the dogs off -leash area connecting to nearby streets
• new garden beds and shade trees.

It is anticipated that playground construction will commence in March 2019.
