City of Stonnington Council yesterday laid the foundation stone for the Percy Treyvaud Multi-Purpose Sports and Recreation Facility.
Mayor, Jami Klisaris said the foundation stone commemorates the official ground-breaking of the Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park masterplan to deliver new community sporting facilities and park improvements.
Joining Mayor Klisaris were Councillors Polly Morgan and Matthew Koce.
While construction continues at the facility, a substitute foundation stone will be in place and replaced with the final bluestone foundation stone once works are finalised, the Mayor said.
The Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park masterplan project is a $49.9 million investment in community sport and public park improvements. The overall budget includes a $4 million contribution from the Federal Government.
The masterplan delivers:
- four indoor courts for netball and basketball
- ·new facilities for Chadstone Recreation and Civic Club (and its sport sections of the Chadstone Bowls Club and Chadstone Tennis Club), and
- park improvements for seasonal sporting clubs and casual users.
