Moorabool Council is going out for tender this week for construction of a multipurpose indoor stadium in Bacchus Marsh, as part of the Taverner St Sports Precinct development.
The project will include the development of four sports courts, multipurpose meeting rooms, an administration office, toilets and change facilities (including accessible change), a cafeteria, car park and road entry, accessible shared pathways and landscaping.
Mayor Cr Tom Sullivan said it was exciting to have this multi-million dollar project at tender stage.
“We’re very excited to deliver this much-needed stadium, part of a much larger investment in sport and recreation in Moorabool to cater for our population growth,” Cr Sullivan said.
“The stadium will have four indoor courts which is enough to meet our current shortfalls and will encourage participants from a variety of sports, including basketball, netball, volleyball and futsal (indoor soccer).
“Existing sports will be able to expand their competitions and more residents will be able to participate in sports locally rather than have to travel out of the Shire to play, which is really important to our community.”
