Improvements to Ovals 3 & 4

Bayside City Council is making a significant investment in upgrades at Elsternwick Park over the coming years, including improving facilities and redeveloping the sportsgrounds.

Following a decision by Council at its 19 June meeting, the reactivation of Ovals 3 & 4 will be considered, subject to consultation, for winter sports use to meet the growing demand for sporting ovals in Bayside.

A Deliberative Panel of 25 community members met over two days in November 2016 to make recommendations for the future uses of Elsternwick Park (north).

Three options were developed. Council then engaged a landscape architect to draw each option to scale and ensure the designs take into account underground infrastructure (drains), planning controls (flood controls) and other requirements including disability access.

This has resulted in small changes to some elements see rescaled drawings and explanation of changes below.

The three options will be taken to Council at the 26 April meeting for consideration. Members of the general public are encouraged to attend and are able to register to speak from Thursday 20 April.
