New building at Hartleys Oval
Published Friday, 29th May 2015
Fairfield City Council has delivered a brand new amenities building at Hartleys Oval in Canley Vale.
The new building was constructed after it was decided the previous amenities block required replacement as part of Council's Building Asset Management Plan.
However, the upgrade involved more than just a new building. The design of the site as a whole was greatly improved through the repositioning of the building so it no longer separated the two fields. Council engaged with Lansvale United Sports Club during this process to ensure the design would meet existing and future needs.
Final touches to the project, such as sealing the car park and landscaping around the site, will be completed soon, with the club receiving the keys to the new building last week.
Hartleys Oval hosts school sport, football (soccer), baseball and has cricket practice nets and a children's playground.
Council will continue to work with Lansvale Sports Club and other community groups to ensure the continued high use of Harteys Oval for the benefit of the community.
Council has for the past four years been investing in the renewal of its amenity buildings.
Most recently Brenan Park (middle field) was refitted (including tiling, roofing, signage). In 2015-16 stage 2 of work at Brenan Park will start with an extension to the building.
Council has funded Hartley's and Brenan Park upgrades from the Open Space Upgrading Program as part of the Building Asset Management Plan, where buildings at the end of their life or in need of renewal are targeted for upgrading.
