Sport and Leisure Policies, Strategies and Plans

The City of Greater Dandenong has an enormous variety of Sport and Active Recreation opportunities for residents and visitors. We are constantly planning how we can provide greater opportunities for the community to participate in physical activity, sport and/or active recreation. The Council also has numerous sporting pavilions and associated infrastructure (i.e. floodlights, coaches boxes and cricket nets) which we maintain.

Capital Works Updates:

The Council invests heavily in providing accessible, female friendly and modern sporting facilities for the community. The priorities for these are identified in the Sports Facility Plan (refer to Strategies and Plans). Below are the main capital works projects that are currently underway.
