Following the construction of the Bellbird Park Pavilion, the Senior Bellbird Park Soccer Pitch is set for redevelopment.
Works will see complete reconstruction and upgrade of the playing surface. Currently during winter, poor drainage and surface issues impact the ability to train across the whole surface, maintenance is challenging, and matches are at risk of being cancelled.
The new sand profile surface will increase the carrying capacity of the pitch year-round. It will improve playing and training conditions, improve safety and meet increasing demand for the sport of soccer, the growth of the Drouin Dragons Soccer Club and Drouin’s growing population.
The total project is valued at $1.6 million dollars, with the Victorian Government contributing $800,000 and Council contributing the $800,000 balance.
Works are expected to commence October 2023, with the project being completed by April 2024.
