Melrose Park Sports Pavilion

The construction of a new sports pavilion that meets the participation demands and sporting clubs needs.

About this project

The Melrose Park change rooms and amenities are at the end of their useful life. Concept designs have been developed in consultation with the Melrose Football Club. The new sports pavilion building will address the identified amenity deficiencies such as lack of female change facilities, additional accessible public toilets, storage and community space.

$1,701,442 has been identified in the 2021-22 Council budget for the project over three years

  • 2021-22 - $650,000 (includes $350,000 from the NSW Government towards female friendly facilities)
  • 2022-23 - $551,442
  • 2023-24 - $500,000

In addition to the above funding Council has been successful in securing $257,000 through Stronger Country Communities program round 4. Along with the Melrose Football Club Contribution of $50,000, the total funding for the project is $2,008,442.

Due the damaged caused to the existing building from fire, which makes the building unusable, temporary facilities have been funded through collaboration between the Melrose Football Club, Albury Wodonga Football Association and AlburyCity. Wodonga Tafe has also assisted with making available their food truck for game days..
