New $2.7 million Hurlingham Park Pavilion opens

10 August 2016

Bayside Council’s new Hurlingham Park Pavilion has opened to sporting clubs and the public, providing state of the art facilities for sport in East Brighton.

The opening is the first milestone in Council’s $25.3 million program to upgrade 26 sporting pavilions across the municipality over nine years.

Bayside Mayor, Councillor James Long, BM JP, said the new pavilion represented Council’s commitment to providing community sporting infrastructure for the future.

“The wonderful new pavilion is equipped with female friendly, accessible facilities to accommodate the growing number of young sportspeople and girls in particular.

Bayside Council has been very active in promoting better sports facilities for women and girls at all levels of government. With its new facilities, Hurlingham Park Pavilion is the embodiment of that campaign.”

Designed by Hede architects on sustainable principles, the pavilion includes solar panels, rainwater collection and eco-friendly illumination.

Hurlingham Park Pavilion is home to East Brighton Auskick, East Brighton Football Club, East Brighton Vampires Junior Football Club and Brighton Union Cricket Club.

Council’s sporting infrastructure investment program recognises the role of sport and recreation in encouraging good health, wellbeing and a more connected community.

In 2016/7 Council will also build new pavilions at Dendy Park, Cheltenham Recreation Reserve, Banksia Reserve and Elsternwick Park.
