I was thrilled to see so many people come out to celebrate winter in Springvale at the recent Springvale Snow Fest.

This annual award-winning festival is one of Council’s biggest events and provides a great boost to local businesses. Greater Dandenong  is home to a thriving business community that employs many local people. We are committed to supporting our businesses.

Ross Reserve in Noble Park has undergone a lot of change in recent years. The Ross Reserve Sports Pavilion was completed in April this year and is now being used by local sporting clubs. New electronic scoreboards have been installed and the north oval’s floodlighting is almost complete. The synthetic soccer field is due to be completed this month and the athletics track is due to be completed in March 2024.

Council will install new coaches’ boxes and complete drainage upgrades on the two ovals over the summer months. Following extensive community consultation, Council is updating the Springvale Reserve Draft Master Plan to ensure this space meets our community’s needs for years to come. 

A number of projects are due to be completed before July 2024, including a new playground, LED floodlighting upgrade at the oval, two netball courts, replacement of coaches’ boxes and an upgrade to the pavilion and toilets. These projects are funded by a $2 million grant from the State Government.

We want to encourage our residents to be active and healthy and the upgrades to our recreation spaces make it easier and more fun to do so.
