Work is now complete on a $918,000 high-usage FIFA 1 Star Rating synthetic pitch at Arndell Park, which is located at Federation Boulevard Reserve.
Wyndham City Mayor Cr Adele Hegedich said the redeveloped soccer pitch was a big win for both the tenant club, the Truganina Hornets, and the wider Truganina community.
“Synthetic surfaces require no irrigation during warmer months, resulting in lower maintenance costs, and can accommodate increased hours of use compared to grass pitches,” Cr Hegedich said.
“This Wyndham City redevelopment also includes a new and improved drainage system, which will aid the longevity of the pitch.”
Wyndham City Active City portfolio holder Cr Peter Maynard said the new state-of-the-art pitch replaced the reserve’s previous surface, which had been out of action due to drainage issues and pitch safety concerns.
“These important works have breathed new life into Arndell Park, and I’m sure the host club and general public will enjoy kicking goals at the reserve once again now that the pitch has re-opened to the public,” Cr Maynard said.
