Car park upgrade drives improved access to community sport

Epping Recreation Reserve will soon be able to welcome more visitors to the bustling sporting hub, with Council set to redevelop the car park from next month.

The car park surrounding the east oval will be upgraded to feature a new entry and exit, and 65 parking spaces, including accessible disability parking. The pavilion’s forecourt will also be extended and updated with fresh landscaping.

City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said that the redevelopment of the Epping Recreation Reserve car park is part of the popular sports precinct’s master plan, which sets a strategy for short and long-term improvements.

“The car park update is just one of the many improvements planned for the reserve in consultation with the community.” Ms Wilson said.

“The 65 parking spaces will provide easy access to the football and cricket facilities, supporting the local clubs to thrive now and into the future.”

Epping Recreation Reserve will remain open and operational during construction, which is expected to be complete by mid-year. There may be short periods during which the car park will be closed, and visitors will be required to use the Park Street car park.

Epping Recreation reserve is located on High Street, Epping. To view the Epping Recreation Reserve master plan visit
