New basketball facilities
We are expanding Bayside's basketball facilities with an extension to the Sandringham Family Leisure Centre Basketball Stadium in Tulip Street.
Tulip Street Basketball Stadium expansion
The project includes:
- a four indoor court extension
- unisex change rooms and toilets
- storage, reception, canteen and first aid room
- air circulation system throughout stadium
- improved access from adjacent road network
- modified programs outdoor half court
- additional car parking.
The new facilities will meet the current and future needs of basketball locally and enable the basketball association to expand its programs. The expansion is located on land reclaimed from Sandringham Golf Course.
The total cost of the project is $9.1 million, including a contribution from Sandringham Basketball Association.
On Friday 31 March 2023 we were notified that Council’s contractor on several of our infrastructure projects – Lloyd Group, placed themselves into voluntary administration with Deloitte appointed as the Administrator. Following a show cause notice process we have now terminated our contract with Lloyd Group to enable us to proceed with a tender for a new head builder. More information and contractor updates
We’re currently finalising the contract to recommence the Tulip Street Stadium expansion project. We’re delighted to be getting this important project for Bayside’s basketballers back on track and looking forward to sharing more information soon.
Tulip Street Reserve habitat corridor - 5 June 2023
We’ve finished habitat corridor works surrounding the Tulip Street Pond and the reserve is once again open to explore and enjoy.
We worked closely with local environmental groups to ensure the safety and protection of trees, frogs, and other wildlife in the area, as part of the basketball stadium expansion. The improved habitat for native wildlife enhances the surroundings of the Tulip Street Pond and enables the movement of native fauna from Tulip Street Reserve to Sandringham Golf Course.

Tulip Street Park habitat corridor works - 30 March 2023
We’re commencing habitat corridor works at Tulip Street Park from 30 March 2023. We’ve worked closely with local environmental groups to ensure the safety and protection of trees, frogs, and other wildlife in the area, as part of the basketball stadium expansion.
The project will create a habitat corridor and enhance the surrounds of the Tulip Street Pond to create improved habitat for native wildlife and enable movement of native fauna from Tulip Street Reserve to Sandringham Golf Course.
During works, the unsealed pedestrian path through the park will be closed for approximately three months. The roadside footpath will remain open for pedestrians with a new BMX track access point from the Tulip Street and Reserve Road intersection.
