Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today joined City of Melton Mayor Cr Lara Carli to tour major upgrade works at Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve which hit a major new milestone this week.Steel framework and turf are being laid this week with the new pavilion due to be completed before summer.

By the end of 2023, Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve will have a new multipurpose community pavilion, a redeveloped oval, new cricket nets, electronic scoreboard, more car parking and new access road.

The new pavilion will be a hub for the Diggers Rest community and fast-growing local sporting clubs. The new pavilion will be centrally located at the reserve and will replace three aged buildings that are no longer fit for purpose.

Council has invested $8.2 million in delivering these upgrades, supported by an additional $4.1 million contribution from the Victorian Government.
