Box Hill City Oval is a highly utilised site with a rich history of supporting the community and sporting clubs of our city. This said the existing pavilions and surrounds are ageing and need to be upgraded.
City of Whitehorse has been invited by the Victorian Government to apply for funding up to $10 million towards a redevelopment of City Oval and Bolton Park. Whitehorse City Council has earmarked up to $5.5 million towards this project.
This project aims to breathe new life into the City Oval and Bolton Park precinct to increase passive and active use across the site.
A concept plan has been prepared for the precinct that considers the location and functionality of current facilities, while protecting the existing qualities that the community value.
The proposal effectively includes:
- Refurbishment of the existing south pavilion;
- Demolition of the ageing north pavilion, to be replaced with a multi-use pavilion with sustainable design features;
- Upgraded accessible walking paths;
- Perimeter walking loop;
- Outdoor fitness equipment;
- Multi-use half court sport court and
- Table tennis facility.
Council is currently seeking feedback from the community on the proposed concept design which can be found on the right of this page. We welcome your feedback via the below link until 5pm Wednesday 24 February 2021.
In park community information sessions will also be held at City Oval with officers available to answer questions and receive feedback on the draft concept design.
Two consultation sessions will be held live onsite at City Oval in the south pavillion on:
Saturday 20 February from 10am – 11am
Monday 22 February from 3pm – 4pm.
Officers will also be available to discuss the project over the phone for residents who cannot attend or wish to further discuss the project.
Please register your interest to attend a consultation session or a phone consult via firstname.lastname@example.org or 9262 6371.
