Modewarre children and families can now come together and embrace the outdoors at a new playspace and social tennis court at Modewarre Reserve.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today officially opened the new Modewarre Reserve Tennis and Play Space Project.
The Andrews Labor Government is giving communities all over Victoria the safe, modern sport and recreation facilities they deserve. It means more Victorians can get active and enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
The new social tennis court and playground will give Modewarre locals a great place to get together and make friends. It makes for a safer, better connected community.
The project has re-energised the reserve by transforming an old tennis court facility into a multi-activity social space for kids of all ages and abilities and locals who love a hit of social tennis.
It includes the resurfacing and painting of one tennis court to provide a fun, safe and accessible social tennis court, new basketball and netball rings. The second court has been converted into a play space.
The playground comes complete with a double swing, accessible nest swing, slides, a social spinner, mini cycle circuit and games including four-square and hopscotch.
Surrounding the play area is new landscaping, shelter, park furniture, BBQ and accessible pathways.
Playgrounds like these can be enjoyed by the whole family and are an important in developing balance, coordination and strength in children, as well as a great place to get active, healthy and connect with friends.
The project was funded in partnership with the Surf Coast Shire.
