Ararat Rural City Council Welcomes the Community to New Gordon Street Reserve

Ararat Rural City Council invites the community to enjoy a free sausage sizzle whilst the kids try a range of different sporting activities at the all-new premium sporting grounds and pavilion at Gordon Street Reserve.

The redevelopment features a multi-use pavilion, with new and improved facilities including:

  • Female friendly change rooms
  • Multi-code club facilities
  • Social space with kitchen and bar
  • New and upgraded playing surfaces to competition standards for senior and junior football, AFL, and cricket
  • Purpose-built Little Athletic facilities
  • Ninja Course
  • New lighting, landscaping, walkways, accessible parking and improved irrigation and drainage

The $4.725 million project was supported by over $1.86 million from the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program, $2.55 million from the Victorian Government under the Community Sport and Infrastructure Stimulus Program, and $315,000 from Ararat Rural City Council.

The Gordon Street Recreation Reserve redevelopment was delivered by Ararat Rural City Council with the endorsement and participation of AFL Victoria, Football Victoria, Cricket Victoria, and Little Athletics Victoria.

“We’re excited to invite the community to come and see the new facilities now available at Gordon Street Reserve,” says Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison. “We’re proud to provide a premium sporting facility to better accommodate our sporting clubs, as well as benefit the wider community.”
