Upgrades at Binnak Park are on the home stretch

The southern car park is now open to the public and finishing touches are being placed on the new pavilion and surrounding areas.

The pavilion roof and cladding have now been installed and work crews are finalising the internal fittings and fixtures before works finish in September.

Synthetic turf has recently been laid on the cricket practice nets, which will be open for community use in time for the 2021 cricket season. The southern car park is finished, with works continuing to complete the northern car park.

Over the coming months, crews will also begin landscaping and planting more than 40 trees as works near completion.

Binnak Park’s upgraded sports facilities will benefit the community as well as Plenty Valley Cricket Club and Watsonia Sporting Club who will join the park’s existing user, Parade St Damians Junior Football Club, after the upgrades are complete.

These upgrades are part of the $68 million investment to keep local sports thriving while we build North East Link. For more information about upgrades to Binnak Park and other sports facilities in the area, visit our sports facilities page.
