Ewing Park has received a $2.89 million funding boost from the state government to transform its current facilities into a community and bike hub.
Bendigo East MP Jacinta Allan said the funding was secured through the government's Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program.
She said the project was one of 42 initiatives that secured funds in the second round of the program.
Once complete, Ewing Park will feature a Wheeled Sports and Community Recreation Hub that will include a skate and scooter park, learn to ride bicycle track, cycling trailhead and multipurpose shelter.
The Greater Bendigo community will also benefit from bike maintenance and drinking stations, connected paths and cycleways, all ages active recreation equipment, public toilets, landscaping and parking at the site.
Ms Allan said the project will support jobs, drive economic growth and produce a facility that will help people in the community come together.
"We're making sport and recreation more accessible, welcoming and inclusive for all Victorians, so more people can play the sport they love," she said.
"Congratulations to United Cricket Club, Bendigo United Cricket Club, Sandhurst Junior Football Club and St Therese's Junior Football Club.
"This boost will go a long way to support the growing number of people in Bendigo keen to get involved in local sport and recreation."
The project is expected to create new full-time jobs during the planning and design phase, and additional jobs when construction commences.
The facility will provide a perfect base for United Cricket Club, Bendigo United Cricket Club, Sandhurst Junior Football Club and St Therese's Junior Football Club to develop programs, train, host matches and events.
