Consultation has now closed

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide their feedback on the projects to be delivered over the next 12 months.

The designs for the upper courts, the carparks and the picnic area will now be further developed to incorporate comments and feedback from the community. Preliminary designs will be shared here as they become available over the next few weeks.

Upgrade plans for the Clarendon Recreation Ground

The Clarendon Recreation Ground upgrade continues the staged implementation of the Clarendon Recreation Ground Master Plan 2020.

The endorsed 2020 Master Plan identified 15 separate but related projects. A number of these have been completed and 5 projects have been funded for design and construction over the next 5 years from 2022.

Works completed to date include construction of a new playground near the upper courts and improvements to the area in front of the pavilion including construction of the stone steps and planting of the pavilion embankment.

Hydroseeding of the oval embankment is now complete, and while successful in some other locations, it may be some time before the native grasses and meadow species germinate given the cold weather.

The 5 projects proposed for delivery over the next 5 years include:

  • reconstruction of the upper tennis and netball courts
  • upgrades of the unsealed carparks next to the Pavilion and across the road
  • construction of carparks next to the Bowling Club for disability parking
  • upgrading of the carpark by the river below the Bowling Club
  • upgrading of the picnic area behind the Pavilion.

As we refine the designs for these projects, we'll share the plans and continue to keep the Clarendon community informed of progress.

Lower Courts

Please note that as reconstruction of the lower courts is not scheduled for funding until 2026-27, we will be seeking feedback on concept plans for that project at a later date.

In the meantime resurfacing of the lower courts has been completed to increase their longevity until they are rebuilt.
