Work is finally about to begin on the Active Recreation Hub at Fruit Growers Reserve! We know the local community is eagerly awaiting this final step in the activity precinct.
Works include:

  • construction of a new skate park area
  • multi-use ball sports area
  • parkour frame and trampolines
  • basketball half-court
  • hit-up wall
  • footpaths and seating
  • new landscaping.

Works will begin in November and are estimated to be completed by June 2022.
Quote attributable to Watson Ward Councillor Paul Mercurio:
“In January 2020, we received $742,500 in grant funding through the State Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund towards the $1.48M Somerville Active Recreation Hub project.
“I look forward to seeing our young people and growing families in Somerville and surrounds enjoy this new space. Together with the four-court Somerville Recreation Centre, the Somerville Active Recreation Hub will transform this part of town into a hub of lively activity.”
