Progress on Docklands’ Ron Barrassi Senior Park

Progress on Docklands’ Ron Barrassi Senior Park Image

Docklands will soon have its own sports ground, with construction of Ron Barassi Senior Park not far off completion.

Construction is expected to be finished in July with the project to be handed over to the City of Melbourne in August.

But the grounds won’t be ready to use until later in the year due to turf establishment.  

The $18 million project has been funded by the State Government, constructed by Places Victoria and, when completed, will be owned and operated by the City of Melbourne.

“Ron Barassi Senior Park is a new park and sports field in Docklands opening later this year, providing space to kick a ball, walk the dog and take children to play,” Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said.

“New Docklands-based sports clubs are encouraged to express interest in calling Ron Barassi Senior Park home.”

“As well as traditional programmed sports such as soccer, AFL and rugby, the sports field could be used for yoga, personal training, bootcamp, Quidditch, Ultimate Frisbee, Bubble Soccer, Swordcraft and more.”

Mr Wilson said construction of Stage 1 of the project included the sports oval, playground, community pavilion and car park. It is planned to finish in August and the park will open to the public in late 2015, subject to turf establishment.

According to council officers at the April 29 Docklands Community Forum, the council is already fielding enquiries from sporting groups interested in making the sports ground its home.
