The City of Casey has now applied for $360,000 funding from the Victorian Government’s ‘2021–22 Local Sports Infrastructure Fund’ to upgrade the AFL/Cricket Pavilion at Max Pawsey Recreation Reserve and we invite you to provide your support.

This funding has a particular focus on providing new and improved infrastructure to encourage the participation of women and girls.

The Project:

The Project will deliver an upgrade to the AFL/Cricket Pavilion to ensure the facilities are female friendly to provide additional opportunities for female participation in sport.

If successful in receiving funding from the Victorian Government, this project will deliver:

  • Upgrade of four change rooms to provide:
    • 3 toilets per change room (total 12 toilets) and 1 ambulant toilet per change room
    • 3 showers with partition cubicles per change room (total 12 showers)
    • 3 hand basins and benches per change room (total 12 hand basins)
    • Resurfaced nonslip floor in wet areas
  • Upgrade to two umpires rooms to provide:
    • 1 shower with partition per umpire room (2 showers in total)
    • 1 toilet (cubicle with pan) per change room (2 toilets in total)
  • Upgrade accessibility components within amenities to improve access for all abilities.


The total anticipated cost of the project is $600,000, with Council contributing $240,000 and if successful the Victorian Government contributing $360,000. If Council is not successful in receiving funding, the project delivery timing will be reassessed to when Council has the additional rate funding to deliver the project.


If successful in receiving funding from the Victorian Government, it is expected that these works would commence September/October 2022 to minimise impact to clubs. Limited impact to residents and park users is expected.
