Tender for Wendouree West Recreation Reserve awarded

Ballarat City Council has awarded a contract for the Wendouree West Recreation Reserve community hub, sports pavilion, changerooms and Men’s Shed to Plan Group Pty Ltd for $4.764 million.

These works are part of the larger $7 million Strengthening Wendouree Community Recreation Precinct Project, funded by the State Government.

Ballarat Mayor, Daniel Moloney and councillor Peter Eddy spoke favourably of the project at this week’s Council meeting.

“There are a number of groups engaged in the precinct…There is a great community feel to the environment and this will be a wonderful facility,” Cr Eddy said.

The Wendouree West Reserve redevelopment project will include a new pavilion and community hub, new soccer pitches and lighting for night games, as well as basketball, skate and BMX facilities.

The Government funding will also go toward the relocation of the Wendouree West Men’s Shed and a new ReCranked Shed, a service which takes unwanted bikes, fixes them and gives them back to the local community.

The redevelopment will also include new inclusive and accessible play spaces, new BBQ and shelter spaces for local families, and a new dog park.
