FUNDING FOR NEW RECREATION SPACES & SPORTING FACILITIES

Today I joined City of Greater Dandenong Mayor Cr Youhorn Chea, Cr Roz Blades and Cr Angela Long at Springvale City Hall to announce a $513,000 contribution from the Community Sport Infrastructure Fund towards new public recreation spaces and sporting facilities at the Springvale Community Precinct. The City of Greater Dandenong is contributing the remaining $4.9 million to this fantastic project.

The Springvale Community Precinct will involve a mix of sport, recreation, open space and landscape features including:

  • Children’s play space with play equipment, including water play
  • A multi-use sports court, viewing area, seating and fencing
  • Table tennis table, foosball table and four square courts
  • Central plaza with interconnected path network throughout the site
  • Central civic green with grassed open space, tree planting and gardens
  • Picnic tables and BBQ facilities
  • Supporting infrastructure including bike racks, drinking fountain, signage and rubbish bins

I am very pleased the Andrews Labor Government is investing in this project and I thank the City of Greater Dandenong for its hard work in bringing this project to life.
