The State Government will provide funding for two projects to enhance active recreation within the City of Glen Eira.

Announced today by Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos, $250,000 has been provided for an upgrade to the senior play space at Hodgson Reserve.

The funding will contribute to the redevelopment of the underutilised play space into a high-functioning, multipurpose play space, including: a hit-up wall; multipurpose ball court; bouldering wall; climbing net; table tennis table; and social activity space.

McKinnon Reserve also received $233,000 in funding for the development of a new active play space. The funding will contribute to the installation of a new multipurpose sports court; custom designed bouldering wall; and social play elements — an extension to the play space that will soon be redeveloped.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Tony Athanasopoulos thanked the State Government for the generous contributions.

“This is a great result for the Glen Eira community, especially children and older youth,” he said.
