WORK has begun on a $1.2 million redevelopment of Janiember Park, with building contractors arriving at the Serpentine Recreation Reserve site on Sunday.
The building works, expected to be completed by the end of April next year, include construction of female friendly change-rooms, a community gymnasium, playground and landscaping with a war memorial feature.
Once completed, Netball Victoria and AFL compliant male and female change-rooms designed to meet the needs of all people and will help increase female and “all abilities” participation.
The project also includes plans to convert the old change-rooms into a new social area and some upgrade works to the Memorial Hall.
The State Government has committed $500,000, Inglewood and District Community Bank $100,000, with Loddon Shire Council and the User Groups of Janiember Park providing the balance of funds to complete the project.
