The City of Casey has celebrated the official opening of the KM Reedy Reserve Cricket Pavilion renewal following a $750,000 upgrade to the Hampton Park facility.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett unveiled the revitalised sporting pavilion on Sunday 17 December, and said he was proud to see Council deliver a state of the art facility for the community.
“Council has been working closely with one of the facility’s key user groups, the Heinz Southern Districts Cricket Club, to ensure we deliver exactly what our sporting clubs require.
“These recent works have delivered a wonderful facility for the community, which residents can access to enjoy a wide range of sport, recreation and leisure activities.”
The redevelopment included renewal to current change rooms, additional new amenities and a third change room for away teams and the reconfiguration of existing layout, new public toilets, and a kitchen renewal including new cooking equipment, cabinetry, benches and kitchen storage.
Internal and external office storage space as well as a new air conditioning and heating system and glass sliding doors in a communal space were also installed.
Cr Ablett said the redevelopment demonstrated Council’s commitment to ensuring that all members of the community had access to a variety of sporting and recreational facilities.
“This pavilion redevelopment will assist Heinz Southern Districts Cricket Club to further attract new members as well as add to their existing five senior teams, four junior teams and the popular Milo ‘in2cricket’ junior program,” he said.
“By having facilities like these it helps to enhance our sporting culture in Casey, as well as the lifestyle and character of the region and the overall liveability of the municipality.
“I hope the Casey community, and particularly this facility’s user groups, enjoy the new pavilion and Council looks forward to seeing it will utilised throughout the years.”
