Community precinct update
Active Open Space and Community Activity Centre – Artist’s impression
We’ve been working closely with Hume City Council and other key stakeholders on the masterplan for the education and community hub within Merrifield.
Centrally located at the intersection of Blackmore Road and St Georges Boulevard, this huge 25 hectare space will comprise two primary schools, a secondary school, community activity centre and sporting reserve.
A massive 9.5 hectares of active open space (4.5 times the size of the MCG!) will consist of two AFL / cricket ovals, tennis courts, cricket nets, pavilions, playgrounds as well as a proposed off-leash dog area. We will shortly appoint a lead architect and commence detailed design for this space with an anticipated opening in early 2021.
Hume City Council will soon start detailed design of its community activity centre, which is anticipated to be one of the largest community spaces of its kind delivered in the municipality to date! The centre is expected to encompass kindergarten rooms, maternal child and health services and general community / consulting spaces. The centre is anticipated to be open in mid 2021!
We look forward to sharing further progress updates very soon!
