$750,000 for major sport and recreation facility upgrades in Keysborough

The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with the job of delivering better sport and recreation facilities for local communities in Keysborough, Springvale and Noble Park.

Member for Keysborough, Martin Pakula today announced $750,000 in Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grants to deliver the Tatterson Park Community Sports Complex (Pavilion) and the Alex Nelson Reserve Pavilion upgrade projects. These projects will be done in conjunction with the Commonwealth and the City of Greater Dandenong, which have also contributed funding for other project upgrades.

The Tatterson Park Community Sports Complex Project in Keysborough will receive $650,000 to build a new multi-purpose community pavilion. The new pavilion will include eight change rooms, a function room, community meeting rooms and a 500 seat grandstand.

The project to upgrade the Alex Nelson Reserve Pavilion in Springvale South will receive $100,000 to improve change room facilities and enable groups to increase female participation.

Victoria is proudly the sporting State. The State Government’s $100 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund will give communities across Victoria state-of-the-art sport and recreation facilities, and the ability to attract and retain more members.

Grassroots sport is a vital part of our local communities in Springvale, Noble Park and Keysborough. These upgrades will help build better sport and recreation facilities and bring more members into local sporting clubs.
