New space for sport in Donnybrook

A new sporting precinct promises to deliver a growing community much more than just a place to pass a netball or kick a football around.

Stage one of the Olivine Recreation Reserve in Donnybrook, built by property developer Mirvac in collaboration with the City of Whittlesea, is now complete.

Featuring a $4.5 million pavilion, netball and futsal courts, cricket nets, dog park and playground, the Council-managed facility is sure to be a sporting and social hub for residents.

Donnybrook Dragons Football Netball Club representative Michelle Mitchell said the precinct will be home to the club as it competes in the Northern Football Netball League.

The pavilion’s benefit will extend well beyond sport, with organisations able to hire out a room for community-based activities.

“Sport is a great way to be connected into the community. The Donnybrook Football Netball Club are really looking forward to getting social events together for kids, adults and families,” said Michelle.

Construction on the precinct’s second stage, which includes two football and cricket ovals started before Christmas and is expected to be completed in the coming months.
