Bellbird Park is set to receive a new female friendly multi-purpose pavilion for users of the eastern section, including hockey, soccer, cricket, local schools, and the general community. Designed as a multi-purpose facility, the pavilion will also be equipped to host community events with commercial kitchen facilities. The project will also see construction of a new carpark including a drop off zone.

The new pavilion will be a home for the thriving local sports based at Bellbird Park, including the West Gippsland Hockey Association, the Drouin Cricket Club and Drouin Dragons Soccer Club. The project seeks to integrate all the sporting clubs on site and provide additional space that can be used by the whole community. The pavilion will enable the consolidation of existing buildings at the site. 

The location of the new pavilion aims to optimise sight lines, ensure safe pedestrian movement across the site and retain the majority of existing significant vegetation.

Designed as a multi-purpose facility, the pavilion will also be equipped to host community events with commercial kitchen facilities, audio visual equipment, flexible room configurations, good access and well-lit car parking all contributing to the Drouin Community Hub implementation.
