Morwell Recreation Reserve will build on its current activities and become the centre of excellence for Australian Rules Football in Gippsland.
Upgrades specific to football will include construction of a multi-use synthetic oval over the old caravan site and upgrades to the existing facilities, change rooms and club rooms.
This will increase capacity for football locally and at the elite level and support the ability to host AFL and AFLW level matches.
New netball courts and a shared cricket/netball multi-use pavilion have already been completed thanks to the funding support of the Federal Government in line with the high level masterplan previously prepared by Latrobe City Council.
Keegan Street Reserve will also be upgraded and the oval re-shaped to alleviate drainage issues and provide quality facilities for the key user groups and the community.
