Community support

31 Aug 2016

By Mindy Gill

The community is rallying behind the installation of a sport and recreation space within the old wharf shed at the Bolte Bridge end of the Yarra’s Edge precinct.

The shed will undergo repair and maintenance works before it is available to be used as temporary multi-purpose recreational courts for about two years.

Places Victoria general manager precincts Simon Wilson said more than 100 people had provided input into the future use of the space.

“We are really pleased at the amount of interest in the project and the number of people who took the opportunity to have their say during the community engagement process,” Mr Wilson said. “There was also some interest in activities such as parkour, rock climbing, bouldering and skateboarding.”

Mr Wilson said the creation of a temporary recreation space was a great use for the shed while the long-term future use of the site was finalised. 

Demolition works to remove the aged concrete wharf and part of the eastern end of the shed are well underway and are expected to be completed over the coming weeks.

Repair and maintenance works on the remaining shed structure will start later this year, allowing for the shed to be transformed into a temporary sport and recreation facility from mid-2017.
