Baw Baw Shire Council is redeveloping the netball facilities at Western Park, Warragul. The redeveloped area will see a state of the art amenities pavilion built and two fully compliant, realigned netball courts constructed. The new facilities will ensure players of all ages have a safe place to play, as well as adequate facilities to use for years to come. 

This project is being delivered in partnership with the Victorian Government, who have contributed $1.44 million towards the delivery of the project. The remaining $160,000 is being contributed by Council through the 2020/21 Capital Works Program.

Background

A new netball pavilion at Western Park is a recommendation in the Warragul Outdoor Recreation Plan Review 2019, which was adopted by Council on 26 June 2019. The Review involved a significant amount of community consultation and has helped scope this project.

Following extensive advocacy from both the Warragul Football and Netball Club and Warragul Industrials Football Netball Club, Council allocated $60,000 towards the design and investigation works in its 2019/20 Capital Works Program.

Council has since worked closely with the Project Reference Group throughout the detailed design phase, with consultants Idwala and BuildingDesigned assisting with the project development process.

In August 2020 Baw Baw Shire Council was successful in an application to the Covid-19 Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program, securing $1.44 million through this fund for the project, allowing it to progress to the delivery stage. 

What's included in the upgrade?

 The existing courts and small netball pavilion are no longer compliant with current sporting code requirements and are nearing the end of their useful life. The two courts will be realigned to make better use of the space at the reserve to incorporate the new pavilion. Spectator viewing areas and lighting will also be fully upgraded to meet training standards across all courts.
