A big part of making Bayside a better place is the construction of new and improved community infrastructure. We have a strong program of investment in projects to meet the changing needs of our community now and into the future.
Projects currently on the go include:
Basketball stadium - Tulip Street
We are constructing four new basketball courts at the Sandringham Family Leisure Centre in Tulip Street, Cheltenham. Construction of the new stadium commenced in January 2022 and will help to meet the current and future needs of basketball locally and enable the basketball association to expand its programs.
Bayside Netball Centre
Bayside City Council, in conjunction with Victorian and Federal Governments, is funding the Bayside Netball Centre development at Sandringham College.
Beaumaris Concourse western car park renewal
We are renewing the western car park at Beaumaris Concourse to restore the surface and reduce localised flooding. The new design will also create an extra two car spaces.
Black Rock Life Saving Club
We are planning a new home for the Black Rock Life Saving Club. The new building will provide access for all ages and abilities, gender neutral changerooms, two accessible parking spaces, and a dedicated first aid room. Read the latest news update on the project.

Elsternwick Park Nature Reserve
We are transforming the former Elsternwick Park golf course into a natural oasis on our city’s doorstep. Elsternwick Park Nature Reserve will bring nature back into our urban area, providing refuge and tranquillity for both wildlife and people.
We’re delivering great new spaces and improved library experiences at Hampton, Beaumaris and Brighton.
Hampton and Beaumaris libraries are undergoing renovations to create great new spaces and improved library experiences. Hurlingham Park pavilion will have a contactless locker and new smart bins will be installed at Hampton, Beaumaris and Brighton libraries.
Playground Improvement Plan
We’ve got a plan for play! We are investing $10.3 million over 10 years to upgrade every playground in Bayside.
New playground designs are developed using feedback from our young Playground Testers, other playground users, local residents and members of the community.
We are upgrading community facilities in Sandringham including the heritage listed Masonic Hall to provide new, fully accessible community facilities in Sandringham. We are also planning an upgrade to the Sandringham Streetscape.
Thomas Street road reconstruction
We will be totally rebuilding the road, kerbs, gutters, vehicle crossovers, stormwater connections and drainage systems along the western end of Thomas Street, Hampton to improve the standard and functionality of these important community assets.
