Castlefield Reserve Pavilion open

Monday 18 February 2019


The Mayor, Cr Michael Heffernan unveiled a plaque and officially opened the renewed Castlefield Reserve Pavilion in Ludstone Street, Hampton on Saturday 16 February.

The Mayor, Cr Michael Heffernan said:

“The original pavilion was built in 1965 and did not comply with the Disability Discrimination Act, nor did it cater for all genders.

“With the pleasing growth of women and girls’ participation in sport, Bayside is committed to making sure our facilities are inclusive and compliant.

“The renewal of this pavilion caters for the increased participation in structured sports for all gender and individuals with mobility issues in a playing or officiating capacity,” said Cr Heffernan.

The upgraded facility was designed by Greenway Hirst Page Pty Ltd and Kister Architects and built by Bowden Corporation Pty Ltd.

The total cost of upgrading this pavilion was $1.5 million. It was delivered at the end of November 2018 and has been well received by the tenants, Hampton Cricket Club and the Hampton Rovers Football Club.

The Mayor, Cr Michael Heffernan said:

“This is a particularly exciting project for us at Bayside Council as it marks another milestone in our $33 million investment to improve all 27 sporting pavilions in Bayside by 2025.”

Castlefield Reserve Pavilion is the 8th facility to be upgraded as part of the Pavilion Improvement Plan.
