Fairpark Reserve

Construction is expected to start early 2022 on the new Fairpark Reserve multi-purpose facility. 

About Fairpark Reserve

Fairpark Reserve is located in Mauka Drive, Ferntree Gully, off Scoresby Rd.

The sports hub features the following facilities:

  • large oval for football
  • cricket pavilion
  • cricket net
  • netball courts
  • playground
  • shared path along Blind Creek
  • University of the Third Age (U3A) centre.

In 2015, a masterplan for Fairpark Reserve, Ferntree Gully was developed and included a future multi-purpose community facility to accommodate the multiple users groups currently utilising Fairpark Reserve including:

  • University of Third Age (U3A)
  • netball club
  • cricket team
  • football clubs

In 2019, the four groups submitted a joint funding application and were successful in gaining an Australian Government grant of $3 million dollars towards the construction of the multi-purpose facility.

The new Fairpark Reserve multi-purpose community facility will: 

  • expand and modernise facilities
  • foster new modes of interaction between its users and the broader community
  • respect the valued natural character of Ferntree Gully
  • retain the unique identities of its user groups
  • enhance user experience
  • cater to the recreational and functional needs of its users
  • deliver a diverse benefit to the existing and future Fairpark community.

Project update August 2021

The overall site plan design has been refined based on community feedback. Detailed concept design of multi-purpose facility, public use zones around the facility, access to the facility including landscaping, car parking layout have been developed.

Construction is expected to start early 2022.
