Jack Grut Reserve Lighting Upgrade

Council is continuing its upgrade of facilities at Mordialloc’s Jack Grut Reserve and is seeking community input on plans for new lighting at the site.

Last year Council delivered new accessible change-rooms at the ground, tiered seating for improved viewing and an umpires room.

Council has also received funding from the Victorian Government to install new sport lighting, which will help meet growing demand for facilities and encourage greater participation.


What does the work involve?

Four new sportsground floodlights will be installed at Jack Grut Reserve.

The modern lights provide improved, targeted lighting for sporting uses while minimising any light spill.


Installation is expected to take approximately eight weeks to complete (weather permitting). Public access to the park will continue throughout the works, however some areas close to the new light tower locations will be fenced off for safety purposes and an area set aside for storage of materials during the works.



Proposed location of light towers



Future improvements

The floodlights are Stage 2 of a 3-stage upgrade at Jack Grut Reserve. Stage 1 was completed in 2018 with the launch of the new modular pavilion. A Stage 3 plan includes further expansion of the pavilion in the future.

The site is home to the Aspendale Stringrays Soccer Club, which boasts 450 members with 36 junior teams, and the Parkdale United Cricket Club, one of the largest clubs in Cricket Southern Bayside.
