Construction kicks off at Polly Parade Reserve in Tarneit

Wyndham city is pleased to announce that construction has begun at Polly Parade Reserve in Tarneit.

The $18 million development will be executed across two overlapping stages.

Stage One of the active open space will include three natural turf soccer fields with an overlaid cricket oval, cricket practice nets, six tennis courts, sports lighting, paths, landscaping, drainage, irrigation, and fencing.

Stage Two of the open space will include the construction of the sports pavilion, equipped with a social room, change rooms, storerooms, and a kiosk.

Construction for Stage One is expected to be completed by mid-2025, with Stage Two also commencing by mid-2025.

Wyndham City’s Mayor Cr Jennie Barrera said: “We’re committed to providing the community with sport and recreational facilities, closer to home.”

“This is another step in providing our residents with the facilities they need and deserve.”

Wyndham City’s Active City portfolio holder Cr Peter Maynard expressed enthusiasm for the reserve, stating that the residents of Tarneit will benefit greatly from this new active open space.

“I’m proud to see this project come to life, knowing the lasting benefits for health, social bonds and community pride – this is space for everyone to enjoy.”

This active open space is part of the $26.7 million Tarneit North Community Precinct Masterplan and includes the Bembit Bag-rook Community Centre, which opened in October 2022 and provides a range of community, health and education services and programs, including kindergarten and maternal and child health.

Wyndham City thanks the State Government for their $750,000 contribution to this project.
