Female Friendly Changing Facilities at Le Page Park Pavilion

Le Page Park Pavilion has been identified as one of our local sporting facilities in need of an upgrade to actively support gender equitable access to sport and recreation.

Last year, Council was successful in obtaining a State Government Grant of $125,000 towards the provision of female-friendly changing facilities in the existing pavilion. These new facilities will encourage greater numbers of girls to participate in the range of sporting codes offered at Le Page Park.

Council is further supporting these improvements with accessibility upgrades to ensure that all members of our community, including those with a disability, are able to participate, spectate and socialise at this popular community sporting venue.

Key improvements proposed include:

  • Renewing the existing change amenities to provide accessible access and increased capacity (resulting in more than twice the existing number of toilets)
  • Dedicated, external-facing amenities for umpires/officials
  • Provision of an external access ramp
  • General refurbishment to the change rooms, kitchen, social area, to modernise the look and feel of the facility
  • Addition of an external storage shed
  • Creation of an administration office.

Master Plan update:
Last year Council consulted with the community on a draft Master Plan for Le Page Park, to help guide the long-term planning for the site. The draft Master Plan is currently being refined based on feedback received and we expect to present it to the newly elected Council for its consideration in early 2021. We will keep you informed as this project progresses. The female-friendly changing facilities are consistent with the draft Master Plan presented to the community and were well supported.

Have we got it right? We'd love to know what you think of the plans. You may also be interested in a consultation that is currently open regarding a playground renewal at Le Page Park. You can view more here
