Carisbrook Rec Reserve designs about to get underway

Published on 19 February 2019


Central Goldfields Shire Council, along with the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve committee, launched the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve re-design project today.

The re-design project will deliver female-friendly facilities at the Recreation Reserve and make sport and recreation inclusive for all residents.

The project is divided into two main phases, with each phase expected to take up to eight weeks. In total, the design works will take approximately six months.

Phase 1 consists of meeting with the Recreation Reserve committee, developing the design brief, concept design options and schematic design.

Phase 2 will see the development of the design plan.

Today’s meeting (Phase 1) outlined redevelopment works for the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve and what will be maintained or altered at the Recreation Reserve.

It is proposed the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve will become a sports hub for the Carisbrook Football Netball Club, Carisbrook Lady Redbacks football club, Carisbrook Bowls Club and Carisbrook Cricket Club. 

Council is contributing $73,000 to complete the re-design plans.

The Victorian Government have committed $2 million for the project which will deliver the planned re-development works for the Recreation Reserve.

Central Goldfields Shire Council is committed to providing local communities with safe and inclusive sport and recreation opportunities, Central Goldfields Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said.

“These re-design works will be a huge asset to the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve and to the wider local community.

“Council encourages more women and girls to participate in any sport and recreational activity they enjoy and these upgrades will allow them to do just that.”
