New park to open this month Image

Docklands’ newest community facility will be launched with a morning of activities next month.

Construction of Ron Barassi Snr Park at NewQuay is now complete and an open day will be held on Saturday, October 10.

The $15 million first stage of the project was delivered by Places Victoria and features a sports field, pavilion, playground, barbecue facilities and a walking circuit.

This month’s open day will include children’s sports clinics by Melbourne Football Club and Melbourne Victory, along with face painting and entertainment by club mascots.

Visitors can also enjoy a barbecue, fresh fruit and hot and cold drinks

Planning Minister Richard Wynne and Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle will attend the open day to officially open the park.

“Ron Barassi Snr Park is the latest community facility to be constructed in Docklands,” Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said.

“Ron Barassi Snr Park will provide somewhere for Docklands residents, workers and visitors to play a variety of sports, have a barbecue, take the children to play or walk the dog.”

The new community facility was named following a public vote and recognises Ron Barassi Snr, who played for the Melbourne Football Club between 1936 and 1940.

Within weeks of being a member of the 1940 premiership team, he was posted overseas to serve in Australia’s Second World War campaign in North Africa. He was killed in action in Tobruk in 1941.

The Ron Barassi Snr Park open day will be held on Saturday, October10 between 9am and 12.30pm.

The park will be owned, operated and maintained by the City of Melbourne and Docklands sporting clubs are encouraged to contact the council to express interest in calling the park home.

New or existing sports clubs can express their interest by contacting the
