Healthy Community

Manningham Council is inviting community members to celebrate the re-opening of Pettys Reserve on Saturday 25 June 2022.

Stage two of the redevelopment of Pettys Reserve is now complete. This major upgrade includes the construction of two purpose-built full size floodlit synthetic soccer pitches, a pavilion with a spectator area, public toilets and an asphalt car park. 

A family fun day will be held to celebrate this achievement and to encourage residents to return to the well-utilised reserve.

The FREE family event includes:

  • Sausage sizzle
  • Face painting
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Roving entertainment
  • NPL2 game - Manningham United Blues FC vs Werribee City FC
  • Children’s all abilities session hosted by Macedon Blues United FC
  • Soccer personalities, soccer games and more!

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.
