Manningham Mayor, Cr Michelle Kleinert said the new sporting facilities at Pettys Reserve provides better sports and recreational opportunities for residents.

“This project is a great example of Council’s commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our community members.”

“We thank everyone for their patience during the delivery of this project. I hope that many of you can join us at our official opening celebration.”

Additional improvements will be made at Pettys Reserve over the next 12 months, including the installation of a new play space.

This project has been delivered by Manningham Council in partnership with the Victorian Government. Total cost of the projects was over $10.70 million to include additional works to the car park area and landscaping with Manningham Council funding $9.90 million and the Victorian State Government contributing $800,000.
