Koo Wee Rup Bowling Club and Community Hub construction upgrade

Published: 18 August 2021

Preliminary plans for a new pavilion at the Koo Wee Rup Bowling and Community Hub are now available for community feedback.

Cardinia Shire Council has received $1.6 million of funding through the State Governments Growing Suburbs Fund for the construction of the new pavilion. 

Council will contribute $1.6 million towards the project.  

The current pavilion is used by Koo Wee Rup Bowling Club and South West Gippsland Midweek Bowls Group, with Koo Wee Rup Lions Club and other community and private groups also using it on occasion. Since receiving the funding, Council has worked with these groups on the proposed design of the new pavilion.  

Residents are urged to jump online and have their say on the preliminary plans. 

The existing pavilion was constructed in the late 1960’s and is located on the south end of the bowling green. As part of the upgrades, the new pavilion will be constructed to replace the existing pavilion. 

The pavilion will feature a multipurpose space for community use that can be divided into two separate spaces.  

The design also features community meeting rooms, unisex change rooms, accessible toilets and office.  

The pavilion and supporting infrastructure will provide universal access and environmentally sustainable design. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Brett Owen said the new pavilion would better support the current clubs as well as other local sporting clubs, schools and community groups in hosting meetings and functions.  

“This is an exciting project and one that I know the local community has been wanting to see take place,” Cr Owen said.  

“Thank clubs working with council, and I encourage the community to jump online and check out the preliminary plans for this project.”
