Ron Barassi Snr Park now open

Docklanders now have a place to kick the footy, share a barbecue and take their kids to play after Ron Barassi Snr Park was officially opened last month.

Around 600 locals and visitors flocked to the park open day on October 10 for an introduction to the new public facility.

Kids enjoyed sports clinics with Melbourne Football Club and Melbourne Victory, along with face painting and entertainment.

Located at NewQuay West, the $15 million first stage of the park includes a sports field, pavilion, playground, barbecues and a walking circuit.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and Planning Minister Richard Wynne both attended the open day to officially launch the new park.

Mr Wynne said Docklands was only 60 per cent finished but had already attracted more than $10 billion worth of investment.

“Ron Barassi Snr Park is a new milestone for Docklands, making it more liveable and a healthy place to call home.”

The park was delivered by Places Victoria and will be owned, operated and maintained by the City of Melbourne.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle commented that community infrastructure was at the heart of all great neighbourhoods.

“The City of Melbourne designed the park with the community in mind. It will help meet the demand for turf sports fields in the inner city and provide great spaces and facilities for everyone to enjoy,” the Lord Mayor said.

Docklands-based sports clubs are encouraged to express their interest in calling the park home. New or existing clubs can contact the City of Melbourne at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
