About this engagement

The concept designs for the new Mackie Road Reserve sports pavilion are now available and we are seeking your feedback on them.


The new pavilion is part of the Mackie Road Reserve Master Plan, endorsed by Council in June 2022.

The Master Plan includes the design of a a new all abilities play ground and the redevelopment of the existing sports pavilion.

The design for the Mackie Road Reserve Playspace has progressed and community engagement has already occurred for this action.

We are now looking at the a new concept design for the sports pavilion that will see the existing pavilion demolished and replaced with a new modern, fit-for-purpose facility.

The pavilion is one of the oldest sports pavilions in Glen Eira. It is home to the Mackie Cricket Club and Glen Eira Junior Football Club and has members of all ages and genders. The pavilion, while functional is not able to meet the growing needs of tenant sports clubs including catering for growing female participation, increasing junior participation and club social activities.

Please review the concept designs for the new pavilion and share your thoughts.

Design features of the new Pavilion

  • The upgrade

    will better meet the needs of our sporting groups and our community

  • Key features

    include maximised sustainability principles and inclusive spaces for people of all ages, genders and abilities.

  • Improvements

    will be made in shade, shelter and pathway connections at the reserve.

  • Building footprint

    will remain similar to the current building to protect significant trees.

We have consulted with the Mackie Cricket Club and the Glen Eira Junior Football Club to align the designs with their specific needs and sporting association guidelines.

The Victorian Government has committed $3 million towards the new pavilion.
