Lord Reserve Pavilion

Lord Reserve is an expanse of open space, providing significant opportunities to play sport, exercise your dog or just enjoy the outdoors. 

Project snapshot

Status: Contractor appointed for construction with site set up works currently underway.
Budget: $4.5m
Timeline: Due for completion March 2022

Lord Reserve features three sports ovals that have a perimeter walking path for a casual stroll. With neighbouring Koornang Park and Carnegie Swim Centre, these locations team together to create a range of leisure activities in one convenient place.

The Lord Reserve Koornang Park Masterplan (PDF, 36MB) identifies actions for the regeneration of Lord Reserve which will see many significant improvements to the area over the coming years. As part of this Masterplan, the existing sports pavilions and cricket training nets will be demolished to make way for a new single storey pavilion. 

An action from the Masterplan is to redevelop the existing sports pavilions. These works are now underway and have seen the relocation of the cricket training nets to the north east corner of the reserve and removal of the existing barbecue area and two trees. Further actions from the Masterplan will see significant plantings and a future rebuild of the barbecue area.

Construction of a new sports pavilion to service the sportsgrounds, sports clubs and provide public toilet facilities.

The new facility will incorporate:

  • a social space with glazed viewing elevation onto the sportsgrounds
  • canteen facilities
  • changing rooms and amenities to service the three sportsgrounds
  • a covered external viewing platform
  • storage areas
  • enhanced landscaping
  • public toilets.

The total project cost is $4.5 million with funding contributions from:

  • Victorian Government — $1 million

Construction of the new Lord Reserve Pavilion has commenced and is expected to be completed by March 2022. The construction works will not impact the use of the sportsgrounds.
