Fairlea Sporting Precinct Upgrades - Yarra Bend Park

Parks Victoria is preparing a feasibility study to determine the layout of planned sporting facility improvements at the Fairlea Precinct of Yarra Bend Park. To support the study, park users, businesses and the broader community are invited to provide feedback on the layout and design of the facilities.

Upgrades include a regional netball precinct which will include eight new netball courts, a community pavilion, improved cricket and soccer pitches, sports lighting, car parking and associated services and amenities.

Project Summary

  1. Two new soccer pitches in the current two cricket pitch footprint
  2. Eight new netball courts in the current vacant land between the Parks Victoria office and Yarra Bend Road
  3. Replace the current pavilion with a toilet and a new shared pavilion
  4. Retain the fly fishers pond without change, in the current location
  5. Removes the existing entry road to the office and provide additional car parking retaining most of the tree canopy around the courts
  6. Lighting improvements
  7. Retain existing uses and the pedestrian trail through the precinct to the Main Yarra Trail, and dog walking activity
