A SPORTS pavilion at Crib Point Recreation Reserve is receiving $2 million in upgrades as part of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s sport capacity plan and pavilion strategy.
The Crib Point Football Netball Club and Crib Point Cricket Club now have new, shared change facilities, medical room, storage space, umpires’ change areas, and office space. There’s also a new public toilet.
The two clubs can now stay in one place whereas previous change rooms were beneath the grandstand, at the nearby public pool and in a portable building.
“The project responds to the significant increase in sport participation in recent years, particularly female and junior involvement in field-based sports,” the mayor Cr Despi O’Connor said.
“Council is pleased to be able to provide for this increased involvement in sports with new amenities where they are needed.”
Cr Lisa Dixon said the shire was “working to provide inclusive, accessible and functional community sporting facilities suitable for our clubs and the broader community”.
“The pavilion change rooms will provide better quality and more accessible facilities.”
