Facilities at the Dennington Recreation Reserve are set for a major upgrade thanks to a $524,000 investment.

The Warrnambool City Council has committed $174,000 to the project with the State Government pledging $90,000 last month.

This is in addition to $100,000 from the Dennington Football Netball Club, $15,000 from the Ray and Joyce Uebergang Foundation, $10,000 from the Gwen and Edna Jones Foundation, $10,000 from the AL Lane Foundation, $5000 from the Ern Hartley Foundation, $5000 from the Archie and Hilda Graham Foundation plus $115,000 of in kind support.

The first component of the project includes the construction of a new multi-use pavilion incorporating new home and redeveloped away football changerooms, toilet and shower amenities for players, male and female umpire change rooms, a trainer’s room and gymnasium area for club members.

The second component includes converting the existing umpire change rooms to a netball change room.

Acting Manager Recreation and Culture Greg Diamantis said the new facilities would help cater for a rapidly growing community.

“Considering the projected population growth of Dennington over the next twenty years, it is important that Council supports the renewal and redevelopment of the facilities at the Dennington Recreation Reserve, the key active open space area servicing the growing Dennington community,” he said.

“The new facilities will meet AFL preferred district facility requirements and provide more equitable amenities for all visitors to the reserve.”
