Morwell’s new shared netball and cricket pavilion is set to be finished by the end of this month.
Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester announced $5 million toward upgrades at the Morwell Recreation Reserve, including new netball courts and the shared pavilion for netballers and cricketers.
Internal painting is underway and joinery and floor covering will be fitted in the next two weeks.
The pavilion will include player change facilities, a first aid room, umpire change rooms, multi-purpose meeting space, a commercial kitchen and covered viewing area for spectators.
Mr Chester said it would provide users with some of the best facilities across the region.
“Improved facilities will help attract more netballers and cricketers, and, importantly, help to attract more volunteers to both clubs,” Mr Chester said.
“This project has also supported local jobs with Traralgon’s Langden Constructions undertaking the pavilion works.”
The Federal Government is providing $5 million through the Local Community Infrastructure Program toward the Morwell Recreation Reserve upgrade, which also includes improvements to the Keegan Street Reserve cricket field and the construction of a multi-use synthetic playing surface.
