Cardinia Council is seeking community feedback to help shape a masterplan for the Upper Beaconsfield Recreation Reserve.

The reserve is set to receive brand new LED floodlighting for the sports field, which will be more energy efficient and provide uniform lighting on the oval to support sport and community activities all year-round and a redeveloped pavilion which will be able to accommodate sporting cubs, scouts, equestrian clubs and the wider community.

The masterplan will guide the future development and use of the reserve for the next 10 years, ensuring the reserve continues to meet the needs of the community.

Beacon Hills Ward councillor Brett Owen said the projects will follow on from other recent works in Upper Beaconsfield, including the BMX track upgrade and restoration of the wetlands on Rosebank Lane.

“It’s fantastic that the reserve has these great projects on the horizon to ensure it keeps being able to serve the community as best as possible,” he said.

Council officers will be at the reserve on Tuesday 25 June from 3pm to 5pm to hear from the community and gather feedback.

Consultation closes on 9 July 2024.
