The $638,000 redevelopment of the Dennington Recreation Reserve pavilion is on track to be finished by the end of July.

The new construction merges with the existing pavilion and now has a new roof while the exterior brickwork is nearly complete.

Warrnambool City Council, the Dennington Football Netball Club and the Dennington Cricket Club are working closely together to coordinate implementation of the project, which includes new home football change rooms, redeveloped football change rooms and umpire change rooms and upgrading power, water and sewer services.

“Once it’s done it will only enhance the chances of getting more people involved in sport,” Dennington Community Association member David Kelson said.

The new changerooms feature will feature improved facilities and there are male and female umpire changerooms.

The project also includes upgrades to sewerage, water and electricity services with these components comprising about $250,000 of the total project budget.

Council is contributing the major funding share of $374,500.

The project aligns with the Council Plan and the Warrnambool Recreation Plan which seek to increase opportunities for people to participate sport and active recreation through safe, inclusive, accessible spaces which encourage physical activity.
