The development of Reid Oval is one of Warrnambool City Council’s strategic priority projects.

The first stage of development, completed in 2015, included improvements to netball facilities and a new electronic scoreboard.

The Reid Oval Development Plan is now being finalised to guide the next stages for Reid Oval’s improvement and enhancement.

In putting together the draft Development Plan, key Reid Oval stakeholders and users groups were asked to outline their aspirations for Reid Oval and to identify infrastructure priorities.

The stakeholders advised Council of their desire for Reid Oval to be the premier outdoor sports ground in the Great South Coast region. 

Achieving recognition from the local community, regional stakeholders and state and national sporting bodies as the premier sporting venue for Australian Rules Football, cricket and netball will also support greater player participation and help attract additional events and competitions.

The consultation identified the following six key infrastructure priorities for future development:

  • Reid Oval playing surface upgrade;
  • lighting upgrades;
  • player and umpire amenity upgrades;
  • improved spectator amenities;
  • improved cricket training facilities; and
  • State / regional sporting association offices.

The community is now being asked to provide feedback on the draft Reid Ovan Development Plan.
