Young athletes and soccer players were at Civic Reserve, Mornington on Friday to officially signal the beginning of a $3 million revitalisation project.
Works have been underway for several weeks on the redevelopment of the home of Mornington Little Aths and the Mt Martha Soccer Club.
Work is expected to be completed by October 2019.
The athletics track is costing $2 million while $1 million has been allocated to soccer.
The money, which comes from Mornington Peninsula Shire and the federal government, capped a week of pledges made to sports clubs in the lead up to the 24 November state election.
