Bayside City Council’s new Dendy Park Pavilion has opened to sporting clubs and the public, providing state of the art facilities for sport in Brighton.

The opening is the second in Council’s $33 million program to upgrade 27 sporting pavilions across the municipality over nine years.

Bayside Mayor, Councillor Alex del Porto, said the new pavilion represented Council’s commitment to providing community sporting infrastructure for the future.

“The wonderful new pavilion is equipped with female friendly, accessible facilities to accommodate the growing number of young sportspeople and girls in particular.

“Bayside City Council has been very active in promoting better sports facilities for women and girls at all levels of government. As the largest multi-sport pavilion in Bayside, Dendy Park Pavilion is the embodiment of that campaign.”

The pavilion was designed by Dale Cohen Architects with funding support from the State Government Female Friendly Facilities Fund.

Dendy Park Pavilion is home to Brighton Soccer Club and Brighton District Cricket Club. It is part of a $10 million upgrade at Dendy Park, which includes new fitness equipment, public toilets, a playground and BBQ facilities.

Council’s sporting infrastructure investment program recognises the role of sport and recreation in encouraging good health, wellbeing and a more connected community.

In 2017/18 Council will also build new pavilions at Banksia Reserve, Cheltenham Park, Castlefield Reserve, Chisholm Reserve and Elsternwick Park Oval 1.
