The Federal Member for Aston, Hon Alan Tudge MP, today announced $3 million for a new Multipurpose Community Hub at Fairpark Reserve in Ferntree Gully.
The current pavilion will be developed into a community hub facility to cater for the needs of the diverse range of locals clubs including Fairpark Football Club, Fairpark Netball Club, Johnson Park Cricket Club and Knox U3A.
Knox U3A will supplement their present headquarters into the new hub.
The Community Hub will include Men and women’s change rooms, showers, toilets, umpires room, storage rooms, social room, kitchen, a multipurpose hall & several classrooms.
This will cater for sporting activities held by the sporting clubs, leisure activities run by U3A Knox and other community activities.
Mr Tudge said the much needed development of the current pavilion, built in 1978, will benefit over 1500 people facility who will use the new facility.
“The existing facilities are well past their used-by date, having been built forty years ago. There are no girls change rooms, poor disability access, and insufficient space for its needs.
“Knox U3A, one the largest groups in Knox, is bursting at its current headquarters and the construction of new rooms will help U3A continue to thrive
“The $3m will fund brand new facilities to meet the needs of the entire community – football, cricket, netball and Knox U3A
“It will be one of the best facilities in Knox when completed.”
