Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In June 2019, Council consulted main user groups and the broader community on proposed key elements being considered for Eastfield Park.
Protecting and enhancing the natural environment and the improvements to Benson’s Pavilion, specifically the provision of female-friendly change facilities, received a high level of support. In response, Council has developed a staged approach to implement a number of key elements within the enhancement plan.

Stage one:

Stage One of the enhancement plan, will be implemented during the next 18 months and will include the following:

  • Discontinuance of the unused section of road adjacent to the former 49 Taylors Road property, and the subsequent title consolidation.
  • Rejuvenation of the bushland areas (in conjunction with the Friends of Eastfield Park group).
  • Redevelopment of Benson’s Pavilion, to include female-friendly change facilities and additional storage.
  • Enhanced after hours lighting for Eastfield Dog Park.
  • Investigation of improved pedestrian access at the Eastfield Road and Blazey Road roundabout

Stage two:

Development of Stage Two of the enhancement plan will occur after the Stage One implementation is completed.

It will involve a further review of Maroondah’s sporting and recreational demands and future requirements across the municipality to provide direction on the requirements at Eastfield Park (specifically the land that is currently utilised by the Croydon Light Harness Club trotting track).

Discussions with existing user groups will continue during this time, including the Croydon Light Harness Club and its peak body, Harness Racing Victoria, with regards to their future needs. The development of Stage Two will also include further consultation with the community
