We’re excited to announce the winners of the Somerville Recreation Centre Colouring In Competition




Construction works for the new and improved Somerville Recreation & Community Centre began in February 2018.

The State Government is providing $1.3m funding through the Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Better Indoor Stadiums Fund, together with the commitment by Council of $4.3 million means the new stadium will feature:

  • four multi-sport indoor courts
  • female-friendly change rooms
  • an umpire change room
  • a first aid room
  • tournament office
  • storage and car parking.

The redevelopment will also include refurbishing the damaged community area, and better public areas in the recreation centre.

Mornington Peninsula Shire will extend its partnership with Belgravia Leisure for the management and operation of the Somerville Recreation Centre, Belgravia Leisure will operate the soon-to-be-completed $9 million stadium until 2022.

The Shire will continue to work with the community as the rebuild is taking place and will keep residents informed as the project progresses.

Building works are scheduled to commence late January 2018. The new facility is to be open by Christmas 2018.

For project updates on the building work, please visit our Major Projects section.

As part of Council’s commitment to delivering the new four-court stadium, funding will be included in the Shire’s 2018/19 Budget for the planning and design of a new skate park in Somerville as the existing park lies within the proposed footprint of the new stadium.

The mobile skate ramp is available at the nearby Fruit Grower’s Reserve in Somerville as a temporary measure – this is just around the corner from the Somerville Recreation Centre site.

Initial planning and design for a new skate park has commenced and will include extensive community consultation.

It is anticipated that initial consultation for this exciting new project will be in late March, through April 2018.

We continue to work closely with users of the stadium to find alternative locations.  All 26 key user groups have secured short-term alternative locations for their operations.   We thank the user groups, as well as other groups and sporting associations that have offered facilities or equipment to support those who have been impacted.
