The $638,000 redevelopment of the Dennington Recreation Reserve pavilion is under way.
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.
“This will be a great improvement for the sporting community of Dennington,” Warrnambool Mayor Cr Robert Anderson said.
“Dennington is a fast-growing residential area so it is important that Council supports the renewal and redevelopment of the facilities at the Dennington Recreation Reserve.
“This is the key active open space area servicing the Dennington community.”
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.
Construction work is expected to be completed this year.
Funding from the project has come from a range of sources including:
Warrnambool City Council $374,500 
Victorian Government $90,000 
Club contributions $100,000 
Philanthropic trusts $45,000 (Ern Hartley $5,000, Archie and Hilda Graham $5,000, A.L. Lane $10,000, Ray and Joyce Uebergang $15,000, Gwen and Edna Jones $10,000)
