Maroondah Leader: Making a grand stand for sport

By May 29, 20073 Comments

Work is progressing on the new pavilion at AC Robertson Athletics Track in Proclamation Park, Ringwood and the Maroondah Leader has reported on the status of this project:

Maroondah councillor Alex Makin said work started on the project at A.C. Robertson Athletics Track last week, and was expected to be finished later this year.

“The building works are extremely exciting, with the new grandstand offering shade and shelter from the elements for the many sporting and athletics clubs that use the track, as well as the broader Maroondah community,” Cr Makin said.

The Athletics Track is managed by a committee of management who supervise allocations who manage the track and its requirements.

“The funding submission and the design of the grandstand were developed in consultation with the committee of management and their assistance has been invaluable.”

Clubs that use the track include:

  • Ringwood District Little Athletics;
  • Ringwood District Senior Athletics;
  • Athletics Victoria;
  • Proclamation Park Walkers Club;
  • Ringwood Triathlon Club;
  • Aerials Netball Club;
  • Local primary and secondary schools.

This project was made possible through cooperation between the committee of management, Maroondah Cocunil and the State Government. The committee of management contributed $16,000, with $48,000 from Maroondah Council and another $48,000 from the State Government.

Works are expected to be completed later this year.
