Jack Grut Reserve pavilion to receive a $780,000 upgrade
25 July 2017
Sporting clubs and community groups at Mordialloc’s Jack Grut Reserve will be moving into a $780,000 new facility thanks to a major upgrade approved by Kingston Council.
Kingston Council last night appointed KL Modular Systems to construct and deliver new sporting change room facilities at the site to meet the needs of both male and female participants.
Works are slated for completion by early 2018, and will replace the temporary change facilities currently used by a number of local sporting clubs.
Kingston Mayor David Eden said the upgrades were part of Council’s ongoing multi-million dollar investment to upgrade sporting infrastructure across the city.
“The upgraded change rooms will be a huge benefit for the many local sporting clubs and organisations who use the reserve,” Cr Eden said. “It will enable them to attract and retain more members.
“These upgrades give the Jack Grut Reserve a new lease of life and we are confident the facilities will be enjoyed by the community for years to come.
“Encouraging a healthier and more connected community is one of Council’s main priorities – and we’re working hard to boost participation in local sports.
“We are committed to providing highly-valued sporting facilities for Kingston, and this project was realised following in-depth consultation with community and users of the reserve”.
Jack Grut Reserve, on Governor Road, is home to a wide range of local sports and community groups including: Aspendale Stingrays, Parkdale United Cricket Club, Mordialloc Jazz Orchestra (MoJO), Step into Life Mordialloc, and more.
