3 January 2017
Works are set to begin on transforming Mordialloc’s Ben Kavanagh Reserve after Kingston Council last night appointed a local builder to construct a new sports pavilion, car park and stormwater drain.
These works form the first stage of the master plan implementation with the works anticipated to commence in early 2017 and be completed over an 18 month period.
Kingston Mayor David Eden said the new double-storey sports pavilion will provide a home base for local sporting clubs and St Johns Ambulance.
“This new facility will feature quality facilities that are suitable for both male and female athletes and accessible to all,” Cr Eden said. “
It will also provide expanded social areas, rooms for umpires/medical staff, storage and a home-base for the valuable St Johns Ambulance service.”
Mayor Eden said the new pavilion, drainage works and car parking were the first stage of broader upgrades at the Reserve that will include improved walking paths, exercise stations, landscaping and playground improvements.
“Council is committed to providing quality parks and sporting facilities for the community and these upgrades will breathe new life into this much-loved local reserve,” Cr Eden said.
Ben Kavanagh Reserve is home to a wide range of local sports groups including the Mordialloc Sporting Club, Mordialloc Super Rules Football Club, Mordialloc Junior Football Club, Mordialloc Football/Netball Club, Mordialloc Cricket Club, Mordialloc Bowls Club, Long
