McIvor Reserve in Yarraville supports an active, but growing community, providing facilities for a range of sports and green space for recreational use.
With increasing pressure on the existing facilities, it’s time to consider how we can ensure the Reserve remains a welcoming and inclusive place where the community can come together to play, connect or relax.
We’ve heard comments from some of the current sporting club users about a lack of shade, seating, and the poor condition of current amenities and want to understand if this view is shared by the community more generally, and if so, what changes you’d like to see.
We also want to make sure the community is able to make full use of the available space which is the reason we’re keen to explore an opportunity to potentially build a new six-court multi-purpose indoor sports facility, with associated amenities, on the site.
McIvor Reserve is one of the few locations in the municipality with enough space to support a facility like this that would service sporting codes, such as basketball, netball, volleyball, and futsal from across Maribyrnong; and without impacting on continued use by sporting clubs and others who enjoy the space currently.
Your feedback will help inform a new Master Plan for McIvor Reserve that will guide its future development.
We want to understand how you currently use the Reserve and any changes you would like to see, as well as your views on the potential addition of an indoor sports facility there.
